You are warmly invited to Helsinki Central Library Oodi on 1st November to an afternoon of contemporary dance. In the event, organised by dance group Liisa Pentti +Co, you will have the chance to see contemporary dance and participate in a movement workshop led by choreographer Liisa Pentti.

The workshop starts at 1 pm and is open to all levels and ages. No prior knowledge or experience of dance is required. In the workshop, you can try out contemporary movement language as well as different exercises and practices used in the dance work Ref2020. At 2.15 pm the dance company Liisa Pentti +Co will show excerpts of their new premiere work Ref2020. After the performance there will be an open audience discussion.

Ref2020 is a contemporary dance work by Liisa Pentti +Co that is performed at Liisa Pentti +Co Studio in Helsinki 14.10.-29.11.2020.

The inspiration for the work Ref2020 has been Brian Eno’s 58-minute-long composition Reflection. The work, created with six dancers, suggests a new kind of connection between contemporary dance and Eno’s music where the meditative music creates singing and historicity of movement. The music and dance create a landscape inside which the viewer can allow him/herself to experience floating, timelessness and dreams that occasionally remind us about a past that perhaps never was.
