NAPOLEON PINK HORSE works like a band. A dancer, actor, writer and musician form a quartet, where each artist's area of expertise is approached as an instrument.

The quartet creates songs from the following ingredients: Performance / Music / Literature / Pop / Dance / The spoken word / Electricity / Singing / Sound waves / Emotional movement / Eating / Noise. The end result is an hour-long performance.

Members of NAPOLEON PINK HORSE have previously produced works for Kiasma as part of a variety of creative ensembles. They also work tirelessly with a number of independent dance and theatre groups, local theatres, bands, in the music and publishing business and on radio and tv, as well as contributing to independent arts projects in Finland and further afield.
