Jenni-Elina von Bagh (FI)

A Prologue
| Friday 11 February
At 10:00 – 11:30
Tanssin talo - Dance House Helsinki / Lobby

Jenni-Elina von Bagh’s solo performance A Prologue explores the relationship of the multi-layered body and the about-to-happen, the unknown. It probes what it feels like to live in this time, how the present confusion and the state of the world are connected to art, dance, our bodies and our senses. What is the moment right before the moment? It resonates with contemporary philosophical thinking that argues that the power of life permeates death, life, human and non-human.
