Insomniac's Fable
“A narrative duet between a circus artist and a ballet dancer is drawing on woodcuts about rough natural landscapes, shadow theatre and almost psychedelic spatial arts…Lister is captivating in her perfectly controlled and impenetrable presence.... The eternal loneliness projected by Männistö’s presence draws the audience in the performance.” - Maria Säkö, Helsingin Sanomat, 2018
