The HUUMA workshops in Kuopio (2019-) focus on examining bodily work through contemporary dance and improvised movement. Various techniques from theatre expression are used to examine and practise interaction and emotional skills. The project involves young participants as active agents engaged in creating content together with artists. The HUUMA LÄBI workshops, open to all festival visitors, continue this practice together with wider participant groups.

HUUMA LÄBI is an experimental and exploratory space; the content and shape of the LÄBI are processed in the HUUMA workshops during autumn 2021. The working group has examined maps and routes in bodies and in city spaces.

CONCEPT & DIRECTION Kaisa Ritola & Anna-Maria Väisänen
