What provides a rare treat for theatre lovers and a flexible opportunity for new audience members to dip their toes into the theatrical water? FELT IF 2012! With the fourth Festival of English Language Theatre in Finland just around the corner, let’s enjoy a sneak preview of what this year brings.
Say all the right words *calmly* to lay out the tracks towards a happy ending…
K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K.K… (?) and you’ll go dry. You’ll get blocked. You might even feel like you’re repeating yourself.
Make small talk instead.
But don’t let your emotions fool you.
Did I hear Fool?
Maybe the head gardener mispronounced and so requested, “Axe Mr Trotsky”?
The world is a theatre. Enjoy.
See you at FELT IF 2012!
