The Kalevala is Finland's epic poem. Rooted deep in the Suomi culture, everyone in the country knows the stories, the characters, the poetry... But translated to English, it's just not very good. English can't handle the poetics of the language, and the forced 8-syllable structure of the Kalevala runes. English has never been a successful way to communicate the power and magic of the Kalevala... ... Until now. Performance poet Scott Sandwich, aka Tom Hogan, takes on this great story of epic proportions... just because he can. Created by Tom Hogan in January 2012, during his residency at Arteles, Finland.
