RRRRR is a performance project that is looking into hallucinatory, delusional and derailed structures used as choreographic starting points. Sonja Jokiniemi is interested in the schizophrenic aspect of our contemporary reality. This project moves somewhere between peripheral otherness, disembodied language, derailed threads of thoughts: virtual fantasy constructions, self-records, overlapping realities and confused truths.

The performance project is complemented by a printed publication, RRRRR.
