All artists are currently fellows at the Saari Residence maintained by the Kone Foundation, Finland.

On a former island is a theatrical ecology that brings together sound, dance, text, humans, visuals, paper, plant material, and anorganic matter and was developed for the Sibelius Museum Turku. The piece was initiated by the composer and artistic researcher Pia Palme (Austria) and conceived, developed, and staged with Elie Halonen, Satu Hakamäki and Tuomas Laitinen (Finland). The artists met during their residence at Saari in March and April, found that they share a deep connection with nature and ecology in art, and decided to enter a risky collaborative process. They are joined by singer Mari Zighinas (Ukraine) and Siiri Viljakka, a comic artist who projects the performance onto paper by means of simultaneous sketching and drawing. For all of them, the interaction of disciplines in this form was unknown and offered space for joyful experimentation and discovery.
