DANCE ALL YEAR LONG / Mia Malviniemi
DANCE ALL YEAR LONG. 12 venues, 12 projects in Kokkola 2020
DANCE ALL YEAR LONG is a 12-month residency program that travels to different cities and invites local and international dance artists for two week long residencies. At the end of the residencies the artists share their projects to the local community, free of charge.
In the work Moments from K choreographer Mia Malviniemi processes a person’s relationshio to a place, to a city, to nature. The choreographic ideas are born from questions how a city, or nature, or a place affects us as humans through their aesthetics, through experiences or through the lived. Present in the work are ‘the past’ and ‘the now’ – through movement, sounds, music and location.
Malviniemi and her working group engage in this research during the DANCE ALL YEAR LONG artistic residency in Kokkola. Working with them in collaboration there are musicians from the Ostrobothian Chamber Orchestra.
