Bypassed - Moving Pictures of Trafficking in Human Beings
Upcoming work with dance artist Hanna Kahrola. In the artistic process, we look at the phenomenon of human trafficking, especially forced prostitution. In addition to dealing with the theme, the focus of the project is to delve into the interactive and collective performative collaboration of dance artist and visual artist. As a result of the project, we are working on a live exhibition, in which dance and visual arts are combined. Premiere of the work in late 2021.
Our work is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Niilo Helanderin Säätiö, Otto A. Malm Foundation, City of Kuopio, Liikelaituri Summer Residency, Old Mine Residency and Live Art Society Autumn Residency.
