PERTO is the Portuguese word for ‘near', 'close'.

A transdisciplinary performance experimenting with the potentials of live video on stage, dealing with human relationships mediated through technology.

Transforming the meanings of the actions on stage by simple video manipulation, PERTO blurs boundaries between ‘virtual’ and ‘real', creating a complex network of interactions between the performers, combining contemporary circus, video art, dance and physical theatre.

Note: Age recommendation +8 years.

The performance is part of Performing HEL, the showcase for Finnish performing arts. Read more here.
