We divide our working periods into these three themes, as starting point and as artistic inspiration for the work. During all of these working periods, we will collect material in writing, voice/sound recordings, film and other, to use in the creative process of this project.
August 8-13 & October 5-10, 2016
Parts of Life will perform in front of its first swedish audience October 7th, 2016, as part of STOFF– Stockholm Fringe Festival. For this performance, we invite costume designer and artist Susanna Suurla to work conceptually, on site, with making costume for this performance. The theme being “play”, we will somehow invite the audience to join us for a playful event. This will all be worked out in August during our first workshop period in Helsinki.
