Talking in the rain: an entertaining show about the weather

Talking in the Rain: An Entertaining Show About the Weather is a project and performance about weather and climate. The performances took place at the Moving in November Festival in Helsinki, Finland, in November 2020. 

The show is a distant performance where the weather will get under your skin. We will find ways of being physical and creating common spaces, even though we will never meet physically in the same space. The performance will take place on your phone, in your surroundings, in a personal postal package sent to you and in a common virtual space, where the feel-good format of a talk show is disturbed by wet feet, black coal and strong wind.

How Does the Weather Affect the Body? How to Embody Statistics?
