Mikko Niemistö


Wakey-wakey is a psychedelic musical that promotes transitions from one layer of the subconscious to another. The stage piece relies on songs and texts echoing times of change, trance, love and death.

Wakey-wakey is like a revivalist movement that invites to wander into the shadowy realms of the mind.
