NOTE! THE WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED. In the course we approach the installation / sculpture The Wall located at Töölö bay. The course exercises are based on the material and methods of the dance performance Get Down From There - And Other Remarks that is presented at The Wall in August 2021.
The starting point of the movements is dance and parkour. In addition, we examine moving in the public space, do improvisation exercises and discuss the experiences connected to the topic.
The course is meant for amateurs and no previous experience is needed. Dress according to the weather in clothes and shoes that are comfortable to move in.
The Wall is a functional sculpture by artist Joni Kärkkäinen. The original idea of the sculpture is by Kärkkäinen and choreographer, dance artist and parkour professional Jukka Tarvainen. On The Wall anyone can climb, hang out at, jump on and spend time as they wish.
