Arttu Palmio


17 bis 22 Uhr / One-to-One-Performance, 20min/Person, Reservierung unter

“Arttu Palmio possesses performative clarity, a sense of humour for understatement and an exceptional stage presence.”

Welcome is a playful and intimate encounter on the border of theatre and real life, a quest for the essential and an attempt for liberation through art. Finnish performer and dancer Arttu Palmio engages his audience in a one-on-one dialogue to find out what they no longer wish to care about and from what they wish to ultimately free themselves. No matter which material or immaterial cares the audience brings with them, Arttu Palmio listens in his own very special way and subsequently develops individual performances – as a gift, a very exceptional titbit and as liberation. A game between reality and fiction, seriousness and kitsch unfolds, brimming with sincerity and naïveté: letting go has probably never been easier!

Arttu Palmio, a dancer and performer from Finland, lives and works in Vienna and Helsinki. He studied dance in Helsinki, Amsterdam and New York. His solo performances have been shown in Finland, Germany and Austria. He was seen most recently in Vienna in shows including a dance WEB stipend at ImPulsTanz and in Dschungel Wien, in Tanz*Hotel and at the Vienna Boys’ Choir Concert Hall.

Each one-to-one performance lasts about 20 minutes per person. Please reserve in advance ( / +43 (0) 1 587 05 04) or just pass by and book your place on the spot from 5 pm in the Künstlerhaus Passage!
