S-projekti (eng. S-project) is a continuous artistic collaboration where two choreographers study the form of a solo work and its audience relationship. The choreographers, Linda Martikainen and Heli Keskikallio, work side by side creating two solos which both challenge the conventions of a solo performance. The shared questions are: what does the solo performance consists of? Is a solo a performance of one person?
The project has started on autumn 2016 and since that there has being seven informal showings as a part of the solo process. Sharing of the process is way to create dialogue between the surrounding art-makers and the audience of art. Overall, the project works toward sustainability in the long-term artistic processes where the focus is not only on the final outcome but on the process as a whole.
With Linda and Heli is also working a sound designer Jyri Pirinen
