Our final day in Finland. . . for now.
We had our send-off party last night in Helsinki with the crew from the theater company Circus Maximus. Sad to say goodbye, but we know it’s only temporary. We’ve been cooking up a performance piece that will premiere in Helsinki in fall 2012 and New York in spring 2013.
