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.
How ta tawk & dans rite is a site specific participatory performance incorporating dance, live music and digital art. Joey Chua Poh Yi, Rhys Turner, Anna Rouhu, and Guadalupe López will explore interchangeable professional roles and cultural norms in a performance which questions both the rites of passage into a given culture and the correctness of doing things right. Thematically How ta tawk & dans rite will link narrative vignettes of searching for love whilst taking a comic look at experiences encountered in foreign cultures.
