performance in English (German description here)

On most days we do things: standing in a bus or sitting in the front of a computer, we have techniques to carry shopping bags or to open doors. How we do what we do, our daily routines affect our bodies. But to which extent does it form our brains, characters, love techniques? How many ways of walking can you do? How do white boots influence your way of walking? Does a jacket change your posture? Or even your identity?

Performance artist Pilvi Porkola invited three choreographers to work with her for three days each to create material for the performance Make My Day. The starting point was to be influenced to choreographer’s work and everyday life. The outcome is a series of acts consisting questions of constructed identity, female/male gestures and habits of body in everyday life.

Duration: 45 mins.
