Nine Short Pieces on Sound: Dance pedagogy course demo 14th Feb

The course demo of dance pedagogy MA students is held at the Theatre Academy on 14th February at 11:00 am.

Nine Short Pieces on Sound

During the Practical Studies in Dance 2 –course, each student has made a short duet in three rehearsals. The focus has been on the multiple features of sound in choreography.

The students have learned about using recording devices and audio programmes, and composing their own soundscapes with found sounds. Being dialogically with one another has been explored at the junction of listening, silence and sound.

The demo will present, among others, a cover version of Dido's song Life for Rent (Ville Nylén), Eevamari Kitti's Untitled for two, and Giorgio Convertito's Cercando il suono di me (Looking for the sound of me).

Duration: approx. 45 minutes.

Performer groups:
Mercedes Balarezo, Giorgio Convertito and Ville Nylén.
Maiju Heikkinen, Eevamari Kitti and Maia Nowack.
Anne Rönkkö, Heini Tuoresmäki and Nella Turkki.
Teachers: Maria Nurmela, Gesa Piper and Tero Kaunisvuo.
