Johdatus / Guidance (2015)

Guidance was an experience-oriented overnight performance that took place in Nuuksio National
Park, Espoo. The performance invited the participants to enter the realm of nonhuman knowledge and guidance by approaching other beings, such as animals, plants, celestial bodies and spirits, as guides, who can show us the way and open up new levels and perspectives in relation to our lives and ways of being human.

The performance consisted of five steps that allowed the participants to attune themselves to the world of the nonhuman, to sensitize themselves to its messages and to receive its guidance. The steps were the same for everyone; however, the internal journey of each participant was unique.
