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.
Performance installation duo, ROOMS, is looking for seven to nine performers to perform in Ritual No. 1: Counting Birds, for Dimanche Rouge Experimental Performance Festival which Ptarmigan is co-producing in Helsinki. One rehearsal is required on October 16 (3pm-5pm), 2013 with performances on October 17th and October 18th (2.30pm - 5.30pm). The performance is three hours long and requires very little performance experience but endurance to stand and speak with minimal movements is necessary. Counting Birds is interesting to perform as it provides a meditating experience for the audience as well as the performer.
ROOMS, is comprised of husband and wife, Marrakesh and Todd Frugia. They are a performance art installation duo from Chicago, USA.ROOMS maintains the belief that the power of art lives within the visceral reaction to the questions that mystery and ambiguity provoke.Please visit roomsgallery.com for past artwork.
