Helsinki: Performance

5th International Conference & Festival for Live Art & Performance Studies at the University of Arts/Theatre Academy of Helsinki. May 27-30, 2015

Bewilderment Project - Participatory Ritual with Satu Palokangas, Laressa Dickey & Julia Metzger-Traber + Guests

27. May, 18-20:00, Studio 1, Theatre Academy of Helsinki

This participatory event aspires to weave our body-minds back into the fabric of nature. It provides a space where tactile, sensory awareness takes precedence, and where we  start to loosen our grip of what we can know, understand and control, allowing uncertainty to manifest. This ritual asks us to contemplate what it is to be a human at this time, when we let go of all our master plans and Savior fallacies.

The event culminates in a moment of re-wilding, a ritual “burning" of those beliefs and habits that have covered our eyes or tied our limbs from acting upon and growing our own worlds.
