 A performance reflecting on the various aspects of human life with sensitivity and compassion. Within 30 minutes, a journey takes place below the space, reaching the skies and falling from the heights. Surface of the waters is starry, underneath floats oxygen beads. Ladders lead to both directions up and down and manifest as scars on the skin, curling bars in the blue lighted staircases, board games of childhood. Heaven is sought and found within, between, and beyond people.

For heaven’s sake is a dramaturgical ensemble of lyrics and music. The multi-disciplinary performance gives voice to the compositions and writings of Saara Berg. The poetry is from her first book Niin minä tipun taivaaseen (December 2019), while the songs are yet to be published. The origin of the lyrics remains undefined in time as they were formed while travelling at the speed of light.
