Them is a documentary-based theatre performance about men, interpreted by four women. The performance is based on interviews gathered from men living mainly in different parts of Europe and United States. Through physical expression and in the form of monologues four actresses dive into the world of men, exploring images of a masculinity and its affects on the experience of a modern man in Western society. The approach is empathic in attempting to understand the joys, sorrows and pains of manhood.

Them will be performed by founding members of Spindrift, Anna Korolainen and Bergdis Julia Johannsdottir, as well as Tinna Thorsvalds Önnudottir and Marjo Lahti. Other members of the crew are dramaturge is Minerva Pietilä, art director Louis Crevier, set designer Eva Björg Hardardottir, light designer Markus Alanen, sounder designer Kristian Pernilä and producer Suvi Nousiainen.


The monologues are performed in three languages: Finnish, English and Swedish.

Them in Helsinki:

The performance will be further developed into its final form until May 2018. After every performance at Teater Viirus the audience is welcome to take part in brief discussions where they can share their thoughts and experiences on the play and its themes.


We are currently working on the research and development for our next project, MEN (working title) at Alppila Church in Helsinki.

As four female artists we are curious about gendered experiences that reach beyond our own, and so we ask: What does it mean to be a man in today's world?

After months of individual research in Europe and North America we are excited to get this time together for intensive two weeks of research and development in Helsinki through the support of Kulturkontakt Nord's Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme

Then on Monday we start our residency at Villa Salin, managed by the Feminist Association Unioni. We will also hold a lecture-workshop on Equality in Physical Actor Training at Maikki Friberg Home, which is part of Feminist Association Unioni's programme at the Women's Open University. 

Finally, our workshop The Performer and the Self will take place at Ilmaisukellari, organised by the Finnish Actor's Union.
