Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.

Ptarmigan will host a residency by Irene Moon and her Auk Theatre. Her website describes Auk as: "Noisy, short and simple Absurdist theatre with only the best topics in consideration; shoes, cardbord, bats, wine, shapes and murder. Created simply to be beautiful."
Irene will create a new Auk performance using the Ptarmigan space and perform twice while also screening some film and video work. As an exhibition, drawings and storyboards by Auk partner Matt Minter will be on display, as well as prints and video stills from past Auk Theater performances and films.
The opening and first performance will be Friday, 25 September at 8:00 PM, with live music by Moon's international duo Lamprey and Vinegar and Helsinki electro-weirdos Hermanni ja Juuso.
