3rd gathering Social Choreography Lab Helsinki
October 28th, 2021.
17 30 - 20h
Sali 1. Eskus Dance Center
Facilitator: : Jonna Lehto
We are happy to announce that as the situation stabilizes, we are finally able to organize the Social Choreography Lab Helsinki workshop that was postponed in spring 2020.
This first gathering will be facilitated by artist Jonna Lehto. Jonna’s work fuses performance and body-based activism. Her current performance project Animal Being investigates the effects, meanings, and atmospheres of kinship, nearness, and otherness. Jonna’s work resonates with the eco-political aspects of Social Choreography, questioning the way relations between different species are choreographed and imagining how these could be re-arranged.
We will explore what are the individual and collective stories, impressions, and bodily experiences of our coexistence with other animals. How are these relations being choreographed by human-centered discourses and power-practices? What would it mean to move together as flocks, as swarms? We will create a space for exploration, dreaming, bodily dialogue, and reflections.
Our first session after the corona restrictionsr uplifting will be held in Sali 1 in ESKUS dance center in Suvilahti on Thursday, October 28th between 17:30 - 20:00h. ESKUS is located in Puhdistamo, building number 6, 2nd floor, the stairs next to Make Your Mark Gallery (see: https://www.eskus.fi/yhteystiedot/).
