Television is a speech performance by writer Niko Hallikainen. The performance is an extension of an obituary written for a real person.

The piece maps out alternative modes of narration as a means of survival. The premises of the piece are stability and security, which are also its ideal outcomes. The journey in between, however, is chaotic, risky and filled with serious dangers.

Niko Hallikainen is a performance poet. In his speech performances, he uses verbal language and musical textures to disrupt limits.
