Tonight’s guests are:

SOPHIA MITIKU is a Helsinki-based artist whose work reflects liminal spaces of daydreams and desire, pink noise, glitches of nostalgia – a requiem for love. Mitiku is a singer and producer, and is currently working her debut album, Copacabana, which will be release later this year. 

OLLI VUORINEN is a juggler, and director and founder of Nuua company. Vuorinen is a very productive contemporary circus artist who has performed in 21 countries. He is known for his personal approach to performing, innovative juggling techniques, and multi-faceted theatre skills.  For this autumn, Nuua company is preparing “Meanwhile”, a new work which will premiere in Järvenpäätalo (8.11) and Sello-Sali (25.1) 

SILVURDRONGUR (Silverkid) is a Faroese multi-award-winning filmmaker, writer, and rapper who mixes dark, Nordic hip-hop with a perverse pop-vibe. The lyrics of Silvurdrongur range from the absurd to the heartfelt, dealing with everyday life and existential questions of the modern age. 

Silvurdrongur is also a part of the collective ÆÐRASOPPAR, a Faroese flowerpunk naprap semi-supergroup which erupted from the societal slumber of 2020 and released its 20-song debut album last Christmas eve. The music of Æðrasoppar is fun, instinctive, and full of surprises, mindfucks, twists and even turns. At Nordic Culture Club they perform as a joint duo. They always manage to hypnotise the audience with strange feelings of doom, wonder, and extreme presence on stage. 

Nordic Culture Club is a venue for cultural practitioners and enthusiasts from across the Nordic Region and around the world. Here, we experiment with and present unique interdisciplinary experiences with a mix of everything from dance, music, performances and interactive experiences to monologues, catwalks, drag, quizzes, installations, video works, and much, much more.
