New interpretation of the search of the Holy Grail
Parsifal is a modern interpretation of the medieval epic. Richard Wagner composed his opera based on this same epic story. We’ve taken the story to the 21th century, made a new composition and want to emphasize how a single person can affect his peers, nature and the whole world. Our interpretation is combining an old indian tale of the two wolves to the story of Parsifal.
Parsifal is a massive tricking based spectacle. The story reminds us of ecological lifestyle. You can understand the story in any language, because there is no written dialogue.

The tale of two wolves
One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said “my son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson though about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?…” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one that you feed”.
Parsifal is offering jobs to 30 young people
The spectacle is made by talented young artists. Tricking has always been about community and doing together. We are giving 30 young adults jobs and a possibility to perform and be a part of a large event. The goals of the project is to remind people of the power of movement and communication without words.
Our goal is the world
With Parsifal we want to change peoples’ views of performance arts in Finland and in Europe. We hope we can take Parsifal to a European tour in the future. Please contact us, if you have a festival or venue in mind that could be interested of collaborating with Parsifal.
