"How does text translate into sound and movement? How does movement become music? How can we go from the sound to the movement? In how many ways could we communicate or not communicate between each other? What stories can be told without words? Who are we, alone and together?"

FAR(AWAY) ENSEMBLE consists of students of the Theatre Academy and the Sibelius Academy. Production is supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
FAR(AWAY) ENSEMBLE is a modular and multidisciplinary ensemble where different forms of arts and languages converge into performances of Music-Theater. Differences and Distances will be seen as resources and tools instead of as issues or situations to avoid. Here, with “Far away” ; In general, we refer to the concept of distance in a concrete and abstract way. What is far physically will not necessarily be far in the content. Two elements sharing a small space can be really far from each other on the level of substance. Anyhow, putting together elements across a “distance” and studying their behavior and interaction can give life to many different and interesting phenomena that we would like to explore.
