TUUSULANJÄRVI / LAKE TUUSULA / TUSBY TRÄSK

Welcome to the 25th Our Festival!

For a quarter of a centennial Our Festival has fed those hungry for art every single summer. Starting its journey with the gentle care of Olli-Pekka Karppinen, further refined by Jaakko and Pekka Kuusisto and prior to us diversified by Pekka, Our Festival will this year take the Lake Tuusula to center stage. This quiet, subtle magnet has with it’s pull attracted, assembled and glued together one of the most significant artistic communities through time and place. Our Festival aims for it’s part to treasure the spirit of this artistic community by being open-minded, modern, working in unison and cultivating different arts and furthermore lately we have asked ourselves

How have we succeeded in cherishing Lake Tuusula?

Seas, lakes, rivers and water have been hugely inspirational elements for us while we have drawn out this summer’s festival. Join us in celebrating Lake Tuusula, the artistic community that came to be around it, and all those good things Our Festival has accomplished thus far!

Kamus: Terhi Paldanius, Jukka Untamala, Jussi Tuhkanen and Petja Kainulainen

Saturday 31 July, 8:30am, Vanhankylänniemi, Järvenpää
DAWNS

DAWNS by dance and music artist Elina Pirinen and Kamus is a sandy, shy, brutal, soaked, romantic, dirty and ghosty world. With a unique combination they paint a freely associating corporeal-musical nature to the shore of Lake Tuusula, which will move out peculiar dances and Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge like a messy ocean. New routes in the brain will be formed, new memories will be born, and the rays of morning light will tattoo skin with drawings of hope.

Aeneas, Migration and Europe
A Theatrical Work In Progress

Our Festival history is filled with musical encounters in working residencies, and this year we’re delighted to expand the format to theatre via an open call. Together with the fantastic Globe Art Point, we chose an international group formed by the stellar UK-based arts production house Dash Arts for a week-long residency where they’re going to be working on an immersive theatre production – a contemporary reimagining of Virgil’s Aeneid, exploring this timeless tale of migration through the lens of Europe today. Their work-in-progress will be revealed on the closing day of the Festival.

Globe Art Point is an association advocating for cultural equity, diversity and inclusion in the arts and cultural sector in Finland.
