12 perfhop horse   man

From 7-27th July 2012 Ptarmigan ry will be on residence at the Performance Center in Suvilahti.

Ptarmigan ry will use the summer residency as a way to develop the concept of perfhop. Perfhop is a recently formed performance club initiated as an open group that meets regularly to experiment with all kinds of ideas, actions, gestures, sounds and words that might possibly look/ sound/ feel like what is termed as performance or live art. Above all perfhop explores how individual practices can be developed in shared spaces. Whilst there will be a core working group to direct the structure of the residency period there will be several sessions open for anyone interested to join to test out performance ideas in a supportive environment. Ptarmigan ry develop projects that exist outside of traditional realms and seek to create opportunities for adventurous and challenging scenarios.

The perfhop working group includes: Sari TM Kivinen, John W. Fail, Marek Pluciennik, Katariina Mylläri, Baaba Jakeh & Iivi Meltaus (+ more to be confirmed)
