Emitting Things

Emitting Things is a project that has had artistic outputs during 2019-2020 in stage and gallery contexts. The outputs of the project are intersected by interest in the dialogue between non-human and human bodies and the study of the relationships between them.

About the artistic outputs

emit is a solo-work (2019) that looked for material and immaterial manifestations of the English word raw (a word that indicates unreadiness and a state of being undone). In this project the main focuses of interest were rhythms, directions and affects that those material beings propose to the human-body. How does it feel to be raw? In the work the human-body tries to situate itself among the other material beings whose sense of time and duration are different. For how long is a thing raw? The solo was performed in Tanzfaktur, Cologne, and in Asbestos Art Space, Helsinki

On autumn 2020 the working group choreographer-dancer Lin Da and composer-sound desigher Jyri Pirinen recomposed the solo-work, emit, into a studio-performance where they both had an activating role. The studio-performance took place on Asbestos Art Space, Helsinki.

In 2021 the working group consist of choreographer Da, costume-set designer Amita Kilumanga, sound designer-composer Jyri Pirinen, lighting designer Olivia Pohjola. Together they work on a audio-performance that will premier on June 2021. The piece is a co-production with Live Art Society.

The project has been supported by: Niilo Helander's Foundation, City of Helsinki, Arts Promotion Center Finland (Mobility grant), Creative Europe program/i-Portunus and TelepART Mobility Support
