Artists talking — MARCH 4th, 2023

Thank you to all who participated in our fruitful premiere event of Artists Talking last Saturday! It was a pleasant evening of engaging conversations - while the microphones were on as well as when they were off.

Our exemplary guest artist was Jenni-Elina von Bagh. Together, she and I spoke about questions like:

  • What do we find dif­fi­cult about art – mak­ing it and receiv­ing it? What does mak­ing and receiv­ing art give us?
  • How to “mate­ri­al­ize” the con­cep­tu­al and philo­soph­i­cal through performance? 
  • Humor in art, espe­cial­ly con­tem­po­rary dance.
  • (Inter)acting with the Inner Partner’s influ­ence on our art and artis­tic personality.
  • The impact of being formed by a Finnish edu­ca­tion as well as inter­na­tion­al experiences. 
  • The rela­tion­ship between con­tem­po­rary dance and var­i­ous sorts of audi­ences. Who does — and can — con­tem­po­rary dance res­onate with?

If you're curious about our responses to these questions, please check out the podcast of the event. It will be out in the next few weeks!

Meanwhile, we are eagerly looking forward to our next event, which will be on Saturday the 1st of April 2023. So follow and share us our social media channels and subscribe to our newsletter for info on our next guests!
