Executed Stories

Studio 1


In Executed Stories performer Juha Valkeapää tells a richly detailed narrative of historic and recent forms of execution. Sometimes taking on the role of the convicted, at others times that of the executioner, Valkeapää delves deeply into the turmoil of guilt, atonement and final meals. Alternating between a critical look at the murderous present and humorous associations during hangman games, he examines the topic from all sides. Executed Stories was shown in an abbreviated “light version” during the Nordwind Festival in Hamburg and now comes to Mousonturm in its full form.
