Helsinki-based choreographer and artist Anna Maria Häkkinen is known for incorporating elements of physical movement, body contact sports, and sculptural composition in her work. For her New York debut, Häkkinen begins with the question: “How to bring back dance again?” Using dance principles such as duration, repetition, and tempo, Häkkinen interweaves her workshops in Helsinki with a young generation of New York dance artists, paying homage to figures such as Judson Dance Theater founding members Lucinda Childs and Yvonne Rainer. Inspired by electronic dance music, the performance will feature musician Keliel (aka Eliel Tammiharju) and dramaturg Emil Santtu Uuttu to form new constellations of movement in space.
