Bubbles Party is a magical, ritual-like and communal multi-art event born in the middle of a performance, concert and party. In a long-term event, the working group takes over the entire performance space and the audience can experience the ever-changing performance on their own accord. In the summer of 2022, Bubbles Party will be seen at the Jyväskylä Summer Festival in Villa Rana and Järvenpäätalo. Bubbles Party starts as a performance event suitable for all ages, continues more aimed at adults and turns into a late-night party. You can come, move freely, go and come again. Welcome to hang out, experience and step into a new era!
Previously in Hanko three different years, the performance event, which was perceived as new each time, is realized in Jyväskylä Summer Festival in cooperation with the Bubbles Party working group, the Dance group Off/Balance and the contemporary circus group Agit-Cirk. The overall designers of the event are sound designer Tuomas Norvio and choreographer Sari Palmgren. The over ten performers include Elina Häyrynen (Off/Balance), Terhi Kuokkanen (Off/Balance), Satu Rekola, Sari Palmgren, Anni Rissanen, Johanna Ikola, Jukka Peltola, Jenni Lehtinen (Agit-Cirk), Sasu Peistola (Agit-Cirk ), Marjo Ylikorva / Vilhelmiina Sinervo (Agit-Cirk) and Sakari Männistö (Agit-Cirk).
