Borrowing its name from the medieval theatre slang term for the stage, The Green promises visually strong theatre, which uses stage magic, video projection, cinematic sound and scenic compositions as its means of expression. The green takes it’s starting point from the contemporary feeling of emptiness and combines it with references to 19th century spiritualism and magic. The nothingness of an empty stage and green screen slowly turn into a living character that takes over the stage area.

The work of visual artist, magician and stage director Kalle Nio is a combination of magic, visual arts, cinema, art-history, circus and theatre. In his stage performances and cinematic installations, he is an inventor, performer and a researcher creating encounters between past and the present, between magic and visual arts, between the high arts and the sideshows, between craft and technology, between real and illusions.
