On March 21, 2018, the Finnish-Estonian production “Ice” was premiered in Helsinki. It is based on the novel “Ice” by Vladimir Sorokin, one of the most famous contemporary writers in Russia. The Finnish audience will see the show two more times in May.

The mysterious meteorite falls in the middle of a deep Siberian taiga. There is a special ice in it, which opens the hearts of people and by touching it, the human being leaves all their life and devotes oneself to the search for lost brothers and sisters. A passionate Ice cult is established, and when the ice melts, the cult reformulates the meaning of life on the planet Earth and its traditional history. The end justifies the means and the cult becomes an inevitable key to the existence.
