Devastating Wilderness of Bodies (2008)

Liisa Pentti worked as house-choreographer of Zodiak – Center for New Dance in 2007–2009. During her house-choreographer residency, she studied movement in the realms of experience and concepts. How does a concept embody itself? How is a bodily experience interpreted into a concept? Within two months four dancers – Giorgio Convertito, Liisa Pentti, Anni Rissanen and Mickaël Stoeckel – researched the different communication forms between movement and thinking, posed impossible tasks for themselves and created danced miniatures through bodily transformation.

The results of this research were presented to the public in three days at the end of March 2008. Each miniature performance included a thematic lecture and a participatory component.

Performance dates: 26.–28.3.2008, Zodiak Studio C4, Helsinki
