Social Choreography Lab Helsinki, next gathering 23.11.

ILMOITTAJA: ESITYSTAITEEN SEURA
11.11.2021

Live art society (Esitystaiteen seura) will facilitate workshops of Social Choreography this autumn. The workshops are organized by the Social Choreography Lab Helsinki, a project by Jon Irigoyen and Emma Hovi.

The next gathering of the Social Choreography Lab Helsinki will be led by the fantastic dancer and choreographer Pia Lindy!

Social Choreography offers tools for investigating how we can unlearn and rehabilitate pre-choreographed aspects of our social, cultural, and political lives. Gathering around these themes and moving together feels particularly important in these times, in the wake of the pandemic.

Our following session will be held in Sali 1 in ESKUS performance art center in Suvilahti on Tuesday, November 23rd 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/).

The gathering will be facilitated by dancer and choreographer Pia Lindy. Pia Lindy graduated from Amsterdam’s School for New Dance Development in 1995 and since then has worked on several solo/group works and collaborative projects with different artists and other people both in Finland and abroad. In her work Pia explores expectations and values embodied in art and society. What does dance and art offer us – or what should it?

We will start in the studio space with a warm-up tuning into our bodies and movement with a focus on perception and relationship to space and the environment. After the warm-up, if the weather is not too cold or rainy, we will go outside and work on some site-specific tasks and then come back inside to share some of our experiences and thoughts with others.

Pia Lindy’s approach to facilitating movement is very much influenced by sociological and societal thinking, and a long-term engagement with somatic movement practices. The aim is to increase one´s curiosity and awareness of movement, to draw from and get inspired by our personal experiences, thoughts, and ideas about the world around us. How is my being here, the way I move and the way I think about it related to more general ideas of embodiment and society? What moves or touches me right now? What is important? What am I aware of? How would I define or experience Social Choreography?
