Temptation of Destruction

The performance Temptation of Destruction deals with the complexity of the global climate crisis and the various aspects of destruction. It plays with our urge to act and on the other hand not to do anything. How many different movie scenes of climate destruction can you imagine? The performance is based on Leena Kela’s artistic research on how to write with a performance.
