CURIOUS. SURREAL. HONEST. CONTEMPORARY. GENTLE. RAW. IMMERSIVE. SITE-SPECIFIC.
Recover Laboratory is a Finnish multi-art company led by Miradonna Sirkka, Sofi Häkkinen Inna Huttunen. We ask you to stop for a while, and experience art fully in your own way. We create surreal artworks born in the steamy crossroads of contemporary circus, contemporary art and experience design - and further mixed with other forms of art.
We produce grande labyrinths in extraordinary spaces, multidisciplinary performances with convenient set-up, interactive art worlds for children, holistic event concepts and customised content for all events. We also have artworks for black boxes and theaters, and we can turn any space into an immersive art experience, waking up your empty rooms. All spaces, even the weirdest ones, are close to our hearts.
In our artistic practice, we build frameworks where we – along with the audience – can explore the world and being in the world. We stand for equality. The reason behind our artworks is honesty; connecting with people in the freedom provided by art. We stand for freedom of interpretation – for both the artist and the audience. Anything is possible in our spaces, just like everything is possible in an ordinary day. We see the extraordinary in nothingness. Here the freedom is yours.
The Recover Family, led by the trio, consists of carefully selected professionals from different fields, including but not limited to, contemporary circus, visual art, performance art, music, dance, stage design, game and experience design.

UNDERNEATH
Underneath, an immersive art labyrinth was performed 29 times during autumn 2018. Everyone stepped in alone. It was an unforgettable, absurd journey to all things humane and being a human, set in a public shelter in Meilahti, Helsinki. Here, you could escape the heavy weight of reality into a parallel dimension, underneath everything. Check out below an edit from under the ground.
In addition to these we have produced numerous labyrinths, events, installations and stage shows. Read more about our past productions here!
SAID ABOUT US:
I hope you somehow know what you did to me. I will never forget this experience.
A member of the jury, Stockholm Fringe Festival
Recover Laboratory is feelings that maybe you didn’t even know existed inside you. Things you might be scared of, things you grieve, or are glad about. It is your own decision.
A viewer
An experience, that even a week later still leaves you partly wordless. I was surprised about the magnitude of the sensations that the performance evoked. I was relaxed, forgot about the outside world, and truly got absorbed in the absurd world of the performance.

Above all, the encounter was something that I did not know I had been missing. It felt oddly good to be seen, and to be in a silent interaction safely with an unknown person. The need to be seen – and on the other hand the fear of being seen – is probably built-in into humane characteristics.
