"Equally fresh and remarkable was 'Kiasma Theatre', a performance by Finnish artist Mikko Hynninen that took place at Kiasma earlier in the evening. Having miked up the computer-controlled mechanical and electrical resources of the stage and auditorium, Hynninen proceeded to transform the venue into a deft self-revealing audiovisual piece. Starting with feedback produced by a microphone being lowered onto the empty apron, Hynninen synchronised the automatic lighting systems, the stage hydraulics, video monitors and smoke guns into intricate bursts of sound, colour and light."
