  • Life is hard and then you die – part 3
  • Tuesday 12,19.00
  • Wednesday 13,19.00

Life is hard and then you die – part 3 is the autobiography of a body. It’s an attempt to share a life, an outer destiny and a personal inner world. Through a collage of material and memory – of unshareable pain, psychological reports, sex dreams, astrology and far too many surgeries it will satisfy your curiosity, perhaps even more than you wished for. The audience is invited to take part in the physical pain and trauma of the person in front of them, what identity even possibly means and how we can share our difficult experiences.

Juli Apponen was born in Finland and works as a director, choreographer, performer and teacher. She studied at the Norwegian Theatre Academy, Østfold University College. Based on her own autobiographical material she has created several renowned solos, focusing on the boundaries, weakness and limitations of the body on stage. She has also co-created collaborative projects that have toured internationally, such as Everything Remains with Jon R. Skulberg and Blind Boi Diaries with and about dancer Sindri Runudde.
