The Finnish artist now shows her skills in composing music for theatre. The play called TUHOUTUMATTOMAT Die Unverwüstlichen: Ein Spiel von Mode und Vergänglichkeit will be premiered on November, 3rd at the Ballhaus im Nordpark in Düsseldorf. The libretto has been written by Friederike Felbeck who also directs it. „Die Unverwüstlichen“ deals with questions as „How old can we get?“ or „How will we be aging in the future?“. It tells the story of a young fashion designer who joins forces with a gang of more than 100-year-old actors and singers. The play will be on stage again on November, 4th also at the Ballhaus and on November, 22nd in Duisburg.
