- Gunilla Heilborn: “MERKURIUS/ MERCURY"
A solo show with Kristiina Viiala by Gunilla Heilborn
– technology, entertainment and communication.
The wonderfully distant planet Mercury is said to affect our communication, our
intelligence, our technology and our social interactions. In addition, Mercury has an extra gig as the messenger of the gods and as such has the task of delivering both good
and bad news. The solo show Merkurius/ Mercury with Kristiina Viiala on stage, addresses all these aspects, as well as the desire of some people to move into space.
