Sixth gathering Social Choreography Lab Helsinki

Thursday April 28th, 2022
Sali 1. Eskus Dance Center
Helsinki, Suvilahti

Facilitator: Mikko Niemistö

This year's first gathering of the Social Choreography Lab Helsinki will happen next Thursday, April 28th, between 17:30 - 20:00h. The workshop will be led by performance artist and choreographer Mikko Niemistö.

Mikko has been working internationally for several years and his piece Wakey Wakey has been selected for the ARS22 live program in Kiasma.

Mikko Niemistö is a choreographer who’s work currently centers around areas that exist in the outskirts of physical realities or linear time like dreams, states of protest and digital realms. In the Social Choreography workshop, Mikko will share some practices that have been present in his recent projects. These movement proposals deal with repetition and duration in order to create associative states that encourage the appearance of body memories and daydreams. By doing this in the setting of ”social choreography” we will see if some kind of collective states of awareness are possible to reach. 


The workshop is free of charge. The space is limited so we encourage you to register as soon as possible.
