Myllyteatteri’s [Mill Theatre’s] Case Gala is a like a carrousel of the mind. It is created from the family memories of the director Miira Sippola, and through them the common history of the European man and human kind marches in. The stage art of Tadeusz Kantor’s and Cricot 2 have had its impact and inspiration to Myllyteatteri’s visual and physical stage language, however developed it in its unique way. In Case Gala the actors and the human size puppets, together with objects and music, finally conjure up a gala of possible a bit more clear mind.
