We are a team of Finnish artists, who ask you to stop for a while, and experience art fully in your own way. The artworks are born in the steamy crossroads of contemporary circus, contemporary art and experience design - and further mixed with music, theatre and technology. Absurd surrealism hangs over the productions. Read more about us here and learn about our previous productions here!

Recover Laboratory's beings fill the voids of the Sideways festival with spirals, boxes, repetitive movement, gliding light and intensive looks. Check out the festival here.

Recover Laboratory joined the award-winning Finnish rapper Pyhimys on his cross-artistic concert tour around the biggest concert halls in Finland. Check out below the live edit from "Four Seasons: Winter", Jyväskylä 23.2.
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.

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.

I hope you somehow know what you did to me. I will never forget this experience.

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.

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.
