Mirko Guido (DK/SE)

These_Connected_Bodies (temporary title)
| Friday 11 February
At 10:00 – 11:30
Tanssin talo - Dance House Helsinki / Lobby

These_Connected_Bodies builds on an artistic investigation of the multi-layered and relational body/individual, deeply interconnected to its environment. The project employs dance, storytelling, sound and light, and through a sci-fi framing, we are working towards a performance installation imagined as a futuristic digital forest. The aim is to create an immersive space of subtle perceptions and palpable visions, for an intimate and poetic experience of interconnections.
