Mad Cup of Tea - tea, tango & trapeze
There is an abandoned place, somewhere faraway, where things don´t work quite as well as anywhere else…
Welcome to the extraordinary tea-party where familiar meanings of space and safety are turned upside-down. Welcome to the weird wonderland of buried hopes.
Black humor and absurdity meet in the magic of theatre, the fascination of circus and the longing for thousands of tangos from Finland.
“... Linnea Happonen has discovered an infinite principle of stage lyrics and impliments them in ways that they never seem to lose their magic.”
