The almost familiar

Baltic Circle’s communication assistant Jannika Lalu took the tube to Kulosaari and met with people behind the piece Thresholds. A research project that gained some attention in the media a few years back, examining the uncanny experiences of people in everyday settings, takes a new form in a performance by a pan-Nordic group of artists. The piece, which is located in a soon-to-be-torn-down mall, calls for gentleness and openness in front of the strange.
