This gesamtkunstwerk* conjures an infernal show on stage, with diversity and difference ruling divine. The audience is exposed to the forces of the imaginary, and are beckoned to various hells, purgatories, and paradises. Armageddon is an invitation to vulnerability, liberation, courage, and openness in a fight against lack of vision, passivity, fear, bleakness, joylessness, and hopelessness.

Armageddon is a collaborative work by actor-director Sara Melleri, choreographer-director Sonya Lindfors, and dancer-musician Elina Pirinen.

* The German term Gesamtkunstwerk, roughly translates as a "total work of art" and describes an artwork, design, or creative process where different art forms are combined to create a single cohesive whole.
