Rain behind the face

Sade Kasvojen Takana (Rain Behind the Face) is a mask theatre solo performance. The show is a visual poem, an expressive story of man and the layers of his psyche. Where is the mirror, from which one sees the face behind the face, and where is the key, which opens the eyes to see?

Ishmael Falke has directed this piece and performs it. Elina Putkinen runs lights and sound. Duration of the show is 20 minutes. No text used. Rain Behind The Face received its premiere in Clipa Theater, Tel Aviv in January 2006 and was later performed in the 7+7 Solo Festival in Rovaniemi, Finland and in Teatterigalleria festival in Turku, Finland.
