«Build Me a Mountain!» is Verk´s second performance about people revolting against God because they want to define their own reality.
The performance circles around the themes: how to relate to our own time and how to continue to live when all the illusions are gone. «Build Me a Mountain!» is a story about the Finnish playwright and business-woman Hella Wuolijoki and the German playwright Bertolt Brecht and their creative encounter in Marlebäck in the Finnish countryside during the summer of 1940. Verk has found diaries, letters, stories and plays from that decisive period and blend fictional scenes with documented material. «Build Me a Mountain!» is also a story about exile and escapism.
