The course given by dancer/musician Elina Pirinen is an introduction to delicate sensitivity and its applications. Long-term psychophysical transformation tasks developed by Pirinen and a sublime selection of music are used to build sensitivity to one's own anatomical structure and moving and feeling through this structure. Sensitivity is understood broadly: it can assume various forms, temperaments and manifestations. The course activities introduce the participants to physical poetry and thinking, to different aesthetics, situations and atmosphere; in short, the method used by Pirinen to build her solo performance Angel, which plays in Zodiak in May. 

The course also includes watching of Elina Pirinen's Angel on 22 May at 3 pm and meeting the workgroup after the performance.
