MovementSEASON “Instinct to…..” concentrates on movement techniques: floorwork, partnerwork, improvisation and economic body movement.  The final goal of the workshop is a trait of movement that does not require the dancer so  much work with emotions and artistic performance as it concentrates on instincts and reactions.

LiikumisSESOON (MovementSEASON) are morning gatherings taking place once a month during one week, where professional dance and performance artists share their experience with advanced dancers and creators, in order to better themselves and their bodies. The aim of the SEASON is to facilitate dialogue within the field of dance and performance art, and to make way for the growth of knowledge.
The program is coordinated and curated by dance artist Joanna Kalm.
“I am a freelance choreographer and performer. And I have one pleasant wish, habit and interest – to move and to create.
Fortunately there are others with similar longings!
Furthermore, I enjoy getting acquainted with how other people do it: what are the ideas, philosophies, research questions various dance and performance artists are working with/on, what makes them tick and move.
The dream is us coming together and sharing knowledge on regular basis. This time and space will become a connective tissue between us. As a result freshly seasoned movements shall grow in our movement(land)scape.
We wish to give the opportunity to new and mature artists to develop and share their practices.
So that movement can rise, creativity blossom, and the root of dance and theatre arts be strong and deep.
This is movementSEASON.
