Moving in November | Angela Schubot & Suvi Kemppainen: SAMMAL/MOSS


A solo body, a singular body, with moss the multiple body speaking through it. A horizontal polyphony in the body with no center, just rhythms.

Choreographer Angela Schubot and dancer Suvi Kemppainen embrace an impossible challenge of a human tapping into the dance of moss. Where can the body take place if not in our human flesh and bones? On what plane is the bodily happening? This solo is a movement study emerging from a long-term, deep dedication to encounters with moss.

SAMMAL/MOSS is part of Herbarium.

The performance is part of Moving in November festival 3.-13.11.2022. As part of the festival, there will be an open discussion with the invited artist and local host called Soup Talk on the 6th of November at noon in Caisa.
