Helkamavirsiä

Can one ride their bike through Finland whilst writing poetry?

A journey from Turku to Tampere to Jyväskylä to Kuopio. A performance about the journey in every city. 

Helkamavirsiä was born from boredom. In the summer of 2015, I decided to cycle from Turku to Kuopio. Just because I had nothing to do and it felt appropriate, I decided that I should dedicate the journey to writing poetry. The Journey took two weeks, and included four performances each in a different city.
