Muistojen pinnalla on Liisa Pentti +Co:n uusi yleisötyöprojekti, jonka pilottivaihe toteutetaan marras-joulukuussa 2018 Vaasassa. Liisa Pentti sekä tanssinopettaja Viivi Sjöblom työskentelevät 27.11.-11.12. Helsingbyn ruotsinkielisessä päiväkodissa 6-vuotiaiden esikoululaisten ryhmän kanssa.

Projektin teemoja ovat suhtautuminen muukalaisuuteen, maahanmuuttoon ja vierauteen. Idea projektiin tuli Liisa Pentti +Co:n vuonna 2015 toteuttaman tanssiteoksen The Sinking of the Titanic inspiroimana.

Muistojen pinnalla -projekti toteutetaan yhteistyössä Helsingbyn ruotsinkielisen päiväkodin ja Pohjanmaan tanssin aluekeskuksen kanssa.

Klaustro – shhh!

Klaustro – shhh! is a new interpretation of a work performed 30 years ago: Liisa Pentti‘s first solo work in Finland called Klaustro. Performed in December 1987, the original work draws inspiration from The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot, the atmospheres of which provided the foundation for the movement material and the choreography.

Revisited by Liisa Pentti and Veronika Lindberg in November 2017, the work focuses on themes that arise from Klaustro’s original version: the memory and the history imbedded in the body, loneliness, a jump, lightness, shadow, death, aging, nostalgia and the present moment. Klaustro – shhh! is performed by Liisa Pentti, making the piece stand out from the genre of re-enactments and new interpretations of works.

Premiere: 21st November 2017 at Zodiak – Center for new dance.

The Body is a (clear) Place in the Space, part 2: The Space

Premiere: Saturday 13 October at 4pm, Kiasma Theater, Helsinki
Other performances: 16.10. at 5 pm | 17.10. at 7 pm | 19.10. at 7 pm| 20.10. 4 pm

The Space, featuring 6 dancers and 2 live musicians, is a performance about beauty and its impossibility. The performers create visions of body and voice transformations and return these to the beginning where nothing has stayed the same. The piece is constructed around Space. Empty space, the dancers’ positioning in space and voice create a tension that is the basis of the work. The Space creates a seemingly chaotic performative landscape that reflects glimpses of beauty. The uninterrupted dialogue between presence and absence forms the poetic tissue of the work.

“the mind has the body as its object” – excerpt from an interview with physicist Karen Barad

Our body holds a vast amount of kinesthetic information, experience and learned patterns. It also holds the elusive and indescribable self, constantly changing and transforming. The two-day workshop, directed by Liisa Pentti, will concentrate on these themes and the kinesthetic shapes arising from them, not forgetting surprises. The work will be based on the following questions: Can we create movement that does not submit to the meanings of language and cultural images, but trusts its own existence so that the bodily knowledge in the borders of consciousness can create new meanings? What is the relationship between language and meaning? How do I dance to music?

The workshop is open to everyone interested in the possibilities of movement.

The Body is a (clear) Place in the Space, part 1: The Body
7th September at 7 pm
Kutomo, Turku

Liisa Pentti’s duet with the award-winning Danish performance artist Bo Madvig lets the body to take centre stage. The unspoken dialogue between the performers does not present but rather makes visible the interaction between mind and body in time and space. The movement arising from within examines the possibilities and impossibilities of bodies in space. What do we see when we look at the body? Are we able to look at it as separate from signifying? And is it at all necessary to do so?
