The arts workshop State of Motion is from the spring 2018. State of Motion was a place for 16 to 29 year olds to be curious, experiment, write, discuss, create sound landscapes and study movement and life. At the OuDance festival, this group performs a piece about fragility and strong desires called Paint a Forest in me.


“Paint a mother’s love in me. Paint your fears in me. Paint your secrets in me.”

Choreography: Eerika Arposalo & Elina Tähtelä | Poetry: Timo Harju & performers

| Sound design: Paavo Impiö

In the spring and early autumn 2018, a group of 60-year-olds gathered around to tell stories and dance, to do movement and literary art exercises based on their own bodies. At the OuDance festival, this group performs a multidisciplinary art piece Of Wind and Force.


Of Wind and Force studies the dimensions of grief, survival and inner strength. This piece combines dance, poetry and imaginary sound landscapes.


Choreography: Saana-Tuulia Lipponen & Tanja Råman  | Poetry: Timo Harju & performers  | Sound design: Paavo Impiö | Performers: Anja Isohätälä, Mallu Jäntti, Eija Kilpua, Sisko Kärki & Mette Mesikangas
