RENAE SHADLER, MARIA NURMELA, Kalle Ropponen
‘Part Of, Within’, Workshop
Saturday 30 March in the Drill Hall.
Inviting you into the creative process of their newest creation, Renae Shadler and Maria Nurmela lead a 2-hour workshop focused on developing environmental awareness and embodiment. Together the group will explore how through movement, language and somatics how we can co-create a notable, sensual experience of being “part of, within”. The workshop will develop towards a collective, improvised choreography inspired by the movement of the Aerocene Explorer, a solar-sculpture that is inflated only with air, lifted by the sun and carried by the wind.
The ‘Susurrus’ project was initiated by independent choreographer/dancers, Renae Shadler and Maria Nurmela in May 2017, in collaboration with a lighting/set designer, Kalle Ropponen and sound artist, Samuel Hertz. As an international team from different artistic landscapes in Australia, Germany, USA and Finland, the group are committed to creating ecological ways to make and present performance art. ‘Susurrus’ have led events at Palais de Tokyo (FR), Ehkä -productions (FIN) and Hellerau – European Center of the Arts (DE), among others.
Kalle Ropponen´s and Maria Nurmela´s participation is supported by Arts Promotion Center Finland.
