La Fura dels Baus: Human Net
Night of the Arts peaks with the Spanish collective La Fura dels Baus’ Human Net, consisting of over 40 daredevils from Helsinki. The work is created by the flowing movement of people forming different shapes while hanging from a tall crane. The hypnotic aerial choreography, pulsating to live music and lights as darkness falls, is a joint effort by the people of Helsinki and La Fura dels Baus, which takes our thoughts deeper into humanity: one may see, for example, chromosome chains or neural networks carrying messages from cell to cell.
La Fura dels Baus’ works, which playfully spread into urban streets, have been seen all over the world, from Barcelona to Florence and from Istanbul to Singapore.
The performance contains flashing lights.
