The New Fire Ceremony
with Maria Pasadaki, Máté Asbót, and Susanna Ylikoski
The ceremony is structured as a chain of competitions and deliberations. The competitions take the form of improvised performances. After each competition, the audience will cast a vote and choose their favorite. The ceremony ends when only one competitor remains. Who will make the ultimate choice.
