Salmivaara's performance is a journey to a garden. It departs from the performance space and invites the audience to a guided tour into a garden. During the tour the audience has a possibility to observe different animals and sites. In the garden there is also a theater.
By repeating the material, the performance constructs and travels through three different states of its space revealing what is, what is not and what could be happening at the very moment.
The 4th part is a performance which plays with the mechanisms for presence ,absence and suspension of disbelief in theater and explores the possibilities in performance. The performance is based on the notions on the act of perceiving- It examines the power of mind in perception and attempts to employ the dynamic gaze/vision and to reveal the role of the memory in the act of perceiving something as something.
4th part continues the performance series “5 IN A WORK NOT CITED” which attempts to describe and execute a utopia of a performance. Each part of the series approaches the theme from different angle.
