SERIOUS INTROSPECTION

SI at IHME episodes 1 and 2

Here are the first two shows from the IHME Päivät festival, which took place in early April 2016 in Helsinki. We set up these shows outside, on the 'stage' next to Vanha where the festival was taking place, and throughout the weekend interviewed a variety of festival participants hoping to promote it to the general public. On Friday, the first show was with Pontus Kyander and Aleksis Salusjärvi, and later we had a very cold session (temperature-wise) with festival director Paula Toppila and IHME 2016 artist Katerina Seda. These interviews are a bit of a different flavour than what we normally did during the Mad House shows but showcase the work of our for-profit division, SI Services (available for hire for your party, wedding, bar mitzvah or corporate event).

Thanks againt to the IHME organisers and the guests!

with John W. Fail is a live show in Helsinki, Finland. We try our best to entertain. The show takes place at Mad House Helsinki's Ihana Baari, and is free to attend. Each week, John along with hype man Justin Tyler Tate, interviews people about their creative process and tries to deliver a direct, communicative experience about art and performance. You know, we did eight shows in the first season and it was pretty time-consuming, but we're excited to be coming back for more in 2016. We've made videos available from all episodes of the show here for you to watch. The videos aren't always perfect and the audio even less so, but we hope you still enjoy them. We also will occasionally post audio podcasts when we get the time to go more in-depth with people, outside of the public show. Next year we will return between February and April for season two; well, it's season two for us, but season three for Mad House, which is a bit confusing. The show will probably move to Wednesdays in 2016 but we still need to work out those details. But wait, there's more! We are available to be booked for parties, wedding, bar mitzvahs and other events. The for-profit arm of Serious Introspection is called SI Services and we're up for anything, really! We will come to your event and offer our services for hosting, hyping and media specialisation (live tweeting) for a variable fee. If you'd like to find out more about Serious Introspection, you can start by watching these episodes and seeing if it's your cup of tea. The hashtag #SeriousIntrospection contains the running stream of live tweets from our media specialist Ernest Truely (and anyone else who might contribute). We have a Facebook page which we use to post info about the upcoming shows and videos as they are released. We have made the show available as a podcast via iTunes and Stitcher. So yeah, that's it, pretty much. We're trying to keep this page simple, if for no other reason than our cup runneth over with websites already. We will announce future events and SI-related matters here so feel free to check back any time.
