Moving in November | Sonja Jokiniemi: ÖH
In her group performance ÖH, Sonja Jokiniemi creates a multisensorial textile environment using handmade rugs as well as knotting and sewing techniques to bind together a sensorial logic as a choreographic proposition.
Sensuality hybrids and the uncanny creates an artistic world of discovery, divergence and liberation from binaries. ÖH is a long duration haptic performance that invites audience to a non-linear logic of weaving meaning and contact. A catalogue of drawn images creates the subconsciousness of the work, where drawings sculpt the performers’ embodiment and weave into textile. The piece is this year’s co-production between Zodiak– Center for new dance and Moving in November.
Moving in November is a contemporary dance festival organized yearly in the Helsinki area. The festival starts on 5–15 November 2020 with Traces in November, a special edition of this year’s festival. With Traces form November, the festival spreads to year 2021.
