Feel Helsinki: As I find myself in this setting you are in it too
During their first year, the students within the Degree Programme in Dance carry out a project that focuses on a group choreography based on the tradition of kinetic composition. During the process, the group has reflected on the artistic premise set by the piece in relation to dancing skills and the creation of our world of meanings with the help of abstract movement. The following key words describe the premise for the piece: body, movement, architecture, space, state and circumstance.
Iiris Blauberg, Sofia Charifi, Arttu Halmetoja, Vilma Hartikainen, Iiris Hilden, Linda Holma, Johanna Karlberg, Sakari Kinnunen, Essi Koivula, Lotta Mirtti, Jussi Ulkuniemi & Maija Viipuri, dancers
Sanna Myllylahti, choreography
Fornier Ortiz, sound design & execution
Schubert, String Quintet in C major (D.956, Op. posth.163)
