Runo liikuttaa (‘Moved by Poetry’) poetry dance workshop
Welcome to poetry dance workshop!
This year will mark the 125th anniversary of the birth of dance artist Martta Bröyer (1897–1979). A pioneer of modern dance in Finland, Bröyer created her own style that combined dance with recitation in the 1920s and 1930s. People’s response to this art form was mixed back in the day, but it serves as an inspiration for today’s artists, dance artist Tiia Hämäläinen and audio artist Marika Hyvärinen.
Held in collaboration with the Runokuu festival and led by its organisers, the workshop will involve looking into poetry and trying out how poems can be interpreted through motion. The workshop is open to all and does not require attendees to have any prior dance experience.
