Description

Helsinki Performance Art Symposium offers a glimpse into the range of performance art created in Helsinki. 

The symposium is composed of a string of performance contributions from participating artists. Each in their own way, the artists take turns to comment on social matters, open up their inner worlds and ponder on some eternal questions of a universal nature, but also dissect performance art itself – the state and shape of it in the Helsinki of the 2020s. 

 

The event was initiated by Maximilian Latva, Joonas Jokiranta and Katri Kainulainen who in the spirit of the symposium also all contribute with their own performances.


Artists taking part in the symposium include Ilkka Sariola, Tomasz Szrama, Irma Optimisti, Sara Kovamäki, Heikki Mäntymaa, Timo Viialainen, Vili
Nissinen, Inari Virmakoski and Maija Kivi. 

The program includes different ways of creating performance art: movement, speech, silence,
participatory as well as introverted performances and quick-paced as well as serene and violent pieces.
