Neighbour is a walking tour performance. It was shown as part of the Yläkaupungin Yö festival which is one of Finland’s longest-lived and largest city festivals. The route of the performance includes the staircases, basement rooms and the hallway of an apartment in Yliopistonkatu 6, as well as the courtyard and common room spaces of the building. Non-verbal performers complemented everyday spaces with their unusual and absurd activities through means of theatre, music, dance, installation and acrobatics to create a one of a kind human exhibition.
