Community dance project in southern Finland happening in August 2018

Welcome to the Community dance project in southern Finland happening in August 2018. The festival is held every other year and this project is the first one of its kind. If you want to participate there are workshops led by professional dancer-pedagogue Sonja Elonen.

We are looking for performers for this dance project! The subject of the piece will be the everyday life in the suburbs of Myyrmäki. The idea is to build a performance for a community dance festival in August 2018.
I will facilitate 5 workshops and during those we will build and practice a dance piece which will be performed at the railway station of Myyrmäki.

So do you have some memories/stories about Myyrmäki that you would like to share and be part of this unique opportunity and spend your summer dancing!?

Warmly welcome to join this event free of charge!
For more details and registration please contact me on Facebook, Couchsurfing or sonja.elonen@hotmail.com

Here are the dates and times of the project:

workshops:

4.8. at 15-17

First Performance

First performance is part of The Community Dance festival programme on Fri 24.8.2018.

The theme is to present different dance performances along the railway from Helsinki city centre to the airport. During the four day festival there can be seen dance pieces outdoors in surprising locations! A group of local different aged participants are building a dance piece and performing it in The Community Dance festival in railway station of Myyrmäki. The director of the group is dancer-pedagogue Sonja Elonen.

Second Performance

The second performance is on Thu 30.8.2018, then it is part of the programme of the local Night of The Arts-event in Myyrmäki.

The dance piece is called Myyrmäki meissä (Eng. Myyrmäki within us) based on the personal stories and memories of the participants, which are inspired by the colourful suburbs of Myyrmäki. For example themes of travelling, home, moving, belonging are interpreted in the piece. The group is proud to present dance art and make it accessible for anyone to enjoy at the railway station.
