Onko mitään merkitystä tehdä mitään merkityksellistä? My Life Is Boring on liikkeellinen näyttämöteos, abstrakti reissu, jolla etsitään merkityksellistä elämää, merkityksellisiä toimintoja ja merkityksellisiä suuntaviivoja olemiselle, elämiselle ja kehollisuudelle. Se on nykytanssiteos kahdelle tanssijalle. My Life Is Boring -teos pureutuu Harjunpäälle tyypilliseen tapaan ihmisten toimintamalleihin, sosiaalisiin tilanteisiin, oletuksiin sekä motiiveihin, syväsukeltaen kohti merkityksellisen elämän hahmottamista. Onko merkityksellinen elämä vakavaa, osaako tai tarvitseeko siitä tehdä huumoria? Löytyykö vastauksia läsnäolosta, onko se hirveä klisee, auttaisiko jos opettelisi pelaamaan tennistä?


Is there any meaning in doing anything meaningful? My Life Is Boring is a movement-oriented stage performance, an abstract trip to finding meaningful life, meaningful activities and meaningful guidelines to being, living and bodily experience. It is a contemporary dance piece for two dancers. Characteristic of Harjunpää, My Life Is Boring delves into human patterns of action, social situations, assumptions and motives, plunging toward perceiving a meaningful life. Is meaningful life serious, does one know how to turn it into humour or does one need to? Can answers be found in being present, is it a terrible cliché, would it help to learn to play tennis?
