Post-MJ Era Institute of Consciousness: Neverland

2015 URB-festival Kiasma Theatre


Post-MJ Era Institute Of Consciousness is a research body run by individuals who grew up within the pop culture of the 80’s and 90’s. The mission behind the Institute is to articulate the influences of the spectacle through the mythical terrain created by Michael Jackson.

Neverland brings the spiritual and corporal heritage of late pop icon Michael Jackson to Kiasma Theatre.

Neverland is a gathering for honoring the life work of Michael Jackson and for creative reassessment of its importance.

Neverland leads the seminar participants to the center of the grandiose and analytical – and invites them to the Ferris wheel of self-reflection.

Dramaturgy and direction by Emmi Venna and Ossi Koskelainen with Michael-Jan Havia, Ilpo Heikkinen, Anne Hiekkaranta, Samuli Laine, Suvi Matinaro, Jani-Matti Salo, Emilia Kallioinen, Iiris Laakso, Marlon Moilanen, Corinne Mustonen, Pauliina Sjöberg, Pietari Vappula.
