A perfromance project by choreographer Sonja Jokiniemi is about human and non-human interdependencies.

The performance is included in the museum ticket (15/13e)

Choreographer Sonja Jokiniemi’s new work Howl is a performance project and an exhibition presented at Kiasma’s Studio K. Bodies of painting, sculpture and live performance mesh with each other and gear towards extended beings through human and non-human interdependencies and hybrid bodies. The work consists of multiple short pieces as moving paintings referring to drawing works by Jokiniemi. Duet format explored together with dance artist Maija Karhunen is a kind of re-worlding of language through the unfolding of multisensorial bodies.

Here You Are -theme year

The theme of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma’s 2019 programme is goodness, with exhibitions and performances throughout the year exploring the ideas of giving, sharing, hospitality and encounters.

We will invite viewers to make art themselves and to experience first-hand its power to bring joy and inspiration. Goodness comes from action, and it thrives on sharing.
