What is equality? Is this world equal for everyone?
Yön yli kantavat äänet is a dive into 19th-century Minna Canth, a 20th-century suffragette movement and gender identity in 1930s Germany.
The timelines meet in a dreamlike world, where Canth questions the status of women in 19th century Finland, Mildred Dunn is at the center of the women's movement in 20th century Britain, and Rudolph Richter reflects on his gender identity on the eve of World War I.
Do they find their own voices or are they suffocated by the surrounding prejudices and state power? 
The work is inspired by the themes of Minna Canth's play The Worker's Wife.
