Kekk Kekk Kekk Kekk

Oh, those huge presidential babies.

The surreal summer adventures of Dirty Duckling continue now in the fatherly protection of former president Kekkonen. The great statesman has regressed physically and mentally to the stage of toddler, and clumsily explores the new and fascinating world surrounding him. Everything is new and incomprehensible. Everything must be touched. And most of all: you can get excited about anything!

Kekk Kekk Kekk Kekk is a durational series of street theatre improvisations with Dirty Duckling's familiar whole body masque technics. Kekk Kekk Kekk Kekk aims warm-heartedly to the identifiable inability, that can be found in each of us, and that is seen most clearly in the mostsensitive of us: the small babies and fragile seniors - naturally not forgetting the warm comic touch.
