Improvising & Performance Workshop #3: The Sense of Place - Jeremiah Day, USA

Saturday August 17 - 14:00 - 18:00, Hapaaniemenkatu 6, K-522, 5th floor.


We would like to invite you to the third workshop / demonstration of Jeremiah Day’s ongoing research into collaborative methods of teaching performance.

In 2019, Jeremiah Day joins as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Uniarts Helsinki’s Center for Educational Research and Academic Development in the Arts (CERADA), developing an investigation into the teaching and facilitating models that emerge from the intersection of dance and visual art.

Drawing upon the performance traditions of post-modern dance - Simone Forti’s improvisational moving-talking method Logomotion, and Steve Paxton’s Contact Improvisation in particular - this third workshop will focus on engaging site and place as methods for dealing with content.

Beginning with vibrant movement, we will build up to improvising through scores, free-writing and story-telling, including working outdoors with the landscape. The session will end with informal mini-performances, offering an arc of creative development through real-time composition. The workshop series overall will give participants new tools to develop their creative vocabulary through spoken word, movement, and ways to support lines of research.
