Speksi is interactive improvisational theatre that combines music and dance performances with audience involvement. In speksi tradition, the audience can shout “Omstart!”, at which point the pre-shout scene is replayed in a different manner. Omstarts can also be accompanied by refinements, such as “Omstart, Stone Age!”, in which case those on stage react by acting the scene according to the refinement. Thanks to the omstarts, each show is unique and the script transforms in every scene.
Speksi plays have a long tradition in Finnish student culture. They are common in the university world, but METKA’s Speksi is Finland’s first for Universities of Applied Sciences. In the production of a speksi, it is essential to have a great team spirit and teamwork, as all team members contribute essentially to the performance. Speksi plays are done completely by the students. It is a very nice hobby to accompany your studies with and befriend people from other degrees!
