There are no limits to our imagination, so come and explore the weird and wonderful creatures inhabiting your mind! Collection of Imaginary Beings is the newest work by the Finnish Other Spaces Live Art Collective, premiering at the Turku Main Library in April 2020. The performance opens the door to a world of creatures living in the imagination. The performance happens in the library, a place where past, present and future generations coexist and live side by side. Through easy exercises that are suitable for everyone, imaginary beings come to life in the corridors of the library. The performance invites people of different ages to get to know their imaginary creatures and share them with each other. The participatory event consists of the “School of Imaginary Beings” workshop, a lunch break, and a visit to the library. In the workshop we get to know non-human imagined beings and learn how to embody them together. After the lunch break, the visit the library lets you look at the familiar environment from a completely new perspective!


Premiere at the Turku Main Library in April 2020, in collaboration with TEHDAS Theatre. Performances on 26.4., 2.5., 3.5. and 9.5. Get your tickets here!
