The performance is simultaneously a performance and an interactive art space. Dressed in brown clothes, the performers produce a variety of simple movements with or without stakes for drying hay, which give thoughts, ideas and associations to the viewers to participate in a “traditional groupwork” performances. Gradually, the movements will gather force, inviting the public to participate. That collective force, a combination of work and fun, results in shapes, the direction of which is not defined in advance. Diversity of movements and shapes is an indication of FORCE POWER. Scriptwriter Anu Miettinen.
