The Days

For Maria Nurmela and Ville Oinonen


The audience are invited on stage for an intimate encounter with two exceptional Finnish performers, Maria Nurmela and Ville Oinonen.

Constructed from a singular physical concept that sustains throughout the work, ‘The Days’ engenders a world of ever shifting negotiations, complex feelings and comic disconnection. Caught in an impossible loop of absurd and heartfelt exchanges, the performers journey takes the form of a lifetime shared, in this compelling performance about care, resilience and the desire for connection.
