Founded in Helsinki in 2000, Oblivia is one of the leading protagonists of the Finnish performance scene who enjoy wide international acclaim for their unique blend of grandiose ideas, minimalist performances and unmistakable "Oblivia-experiences".
Originally created in collaboration with teenagers from Helsinki, ›Children and other Radicals‹ is an invitation to adults and young viewers to create visions together. For the performance at PACT, Oblivia have teamed up with young people from Essen to openly question cooperation between different generations, power structures and the role of money. How do generations X, Y and Z see the future?
