Anna Maria Häkkinen

During this residency, Finnish choreographer Anna Maria Häkkinen and her team are looking for new ways to make movement-based dance after an era that questioned the flow of movement. The work aspires towards freedom and euphoria through compositional and material discipline by creating a pre-composed choreography that liberates the dancer from the ubiquitous decision-making and production of new content. The purpose of the residency is to create material for a new piece with a smaller group. The material will be later adapted and composed to six dancers.

Fundamentally, the work is about flow of movement that results in pleasure. The flow and its varying intensities, tempos and suspensions accumulate and pile up energies that leak into the dancing body and from the body back into the space.
