- LIVING FORMS / TROUBLED MINDS
LIVING FORMS / TROUBLED MINDSPRINT THIS PAGE
Living forms / troubled minds is both a solo performance and a choreographic installation. The focus of the work is both the concept and the experience of energy - especially as it relates to fossil fuels and corporeality.
Lehtovaara is eager to understand the forms of movement and choreography that the proliferation of fossil fuels has both produced and obliterated in this era. It is no wonder, for example, that we are exhausted when the tempo of daily life is so radically altered by the use of energy intensive, easily mobilized fossil fuels.
During his residency, Lehtovaara will do intensive research on the subject of energy and approach both the concept and the experience in his choreographic thinking and movement practices. Collaborating with a visual artist and a sound artist will expand his media of research to include auditive and visual information.
The premiere of the work will be at Oil Silo 468 in Helsinki, Finland in August 2019.
