In the slang used by medieval theatre actors, the stage was referred to as The Green. The Green is a solo stage performance by Kalle Nio: visual theatre using stage magic, video projections and surround sound as the means of expression. The thematic core of The Green is formed by hauntology, spirituality found in the act of consuming, and the unboxing videos on Youtube.
