temporary_pavillion

Studio Aleppo [Helsinki] welcomes “Temporary Pavilion for Permanent Negotiations” by Kalleinen & Kochta-Kalleinen!

Scroll down for the exact schedule. The stories are told at the archaeological sand box in the park of the National Museum of Finland.

Artists Kalleinen & Kochta-Kalleinen (Tellervo Kalleinen & Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen) looked for stories about conflicts that were amicably settled. The stories they received came from different areas of life and society and were taking place in different parts of the world. A selection of the stories will be retold at Temporary Pavilion for Permanent Negotiations! The story teller is a Dutch mediator Chantal van Doesburgh, who also facilitates discussion, which the conflict stories might raise. Come and join us!

A drama teacher gives theatre classes at a school, sees violence in the class and learns that the permanent teachers of the school deny the behaviour problems of the children.
