Part of Zodiak’s Valokeilassa koillinen (Focus on the Northeast) project, Spell is a dance performance organised in the urban natural surroundings of North East Helsinki. The performance is based on workshops and individual group work. The main theme of Spell is the world-constructive effect of all human activity. Every action we take conjures up something new in the world. The body in motion shakes everything around it. The process is facilitated by dance artist Anna Koskela.
You are welcome to follow the group’s open rehearsals on The Wall on June 19 at 11:00-15:00. The performance will premiere on 17 July.
The Wall, an installation situated on Töölönlahti Bay by artist Joni Kärkkäinen and choreographer Jukka Tarvainen that invites people to encounter art through movement and self-initiated activity. Tarvainen will additionally direct a performance Get Down From There – And Other Warnings in which pro parkour athletes and professional and amateur dancers interact with The Wall. Open workshops will be held at The Wall throughout the summer of the Biennial, as well as a special event organized by artist James Prevett, Patsastellaan – Parties for Public Sculpture. The work will also serve as a venue of the Flow Finland parkour tour.
