Helsinki: Body and Space

NORDIC BALTIC EXPRESS
Title of course:  Body and Space
Where: Aalto University, Helsinki
Number of days, excluding travel days: 5
Period: 20/02/17 - 24/02/17
Level: BA
Number of ECTS credits: 2
Number of study places: 2 (for incoming NorTeas students) 

Description
The aim of the course is to explore the potential of the performer's body in the performance space from a multi-disciplinary perspective through experimentation, testing, and group work. The course builds on principles of visual and spatial composition, looking at the body of the performer in the space and the meanings resulting from a spatial relationship. The starting point is that the actor not only performs through speech but also through physical presence which has a visual and spatial perspective. Through practical creative explorations in a performance environment the course explores the spatial dynamics of bodies in space, and investigates notions of: movement and stillness; posture and position; appearance, disappearance and trace; metamorphosis; extension; proximity and distance; single and multiple; size and proportion. The course is based on workshop exercises undertaken individually and in a group, and is supported by talks and lectures giving theoretical insights on the subject.

How to apply
send a letter of motivation and information on your previous studies to the lecturer of scenography Sampo Pyhälä (sampo.pyhala@aalto.fi) by 3th of February 2017.
