Why do we keep getting stuck? Suo, Silent, Disco is a piece that combines traces of the rare, typical and controversial Finnish suo (swamp, bog or peatland) into a light-hearted physical experiment. Participants are invited to share the playful and audiovisual space of the sticky unknown. Suo, Silent, Disco was created through different experiences and ideas of suo landscapes, which cover almost a third of Finland’s land area. Although the piece approaches the theme from a playful and heartfelt point of view, the cultural and political aspects of suo areas are controversial. Suos act as great carbon sinks, but for decades they have been severely threatened by drainage and peat extraction. These human actions create huge emissions and damage ecosystems. Knowing all this, why do we keep getting stuck? Suo, Silent, Disco was co-organised by the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki and the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The work was sponsored by Studiotec Oy.
