Ptarmigan Tallinn's current artist in residence, Camilla Graff Junior, will perform My Mom is a Wolf, My Dad... at XL Art Space on Tuesday, 26 November at 18:00. The performance is free and lasts about 80 minutes.
We are looking for elephants and performers to take part in a new art work by British artist Amelia Beavis-Harrison on Friday 18th October 2013. The performance is part of the Dimanche Rouge Estonia-Finland-France festival which will take place in Helsinki from 17-20 October. The new piece called The Elephant Dance will see six people take on the roles of elephant and hunter as a durational performance plays out around the Helsinki Art Museum. The performance uses movement as a way of interpreting traditional tribal dance to create a re-worked performance but is not a choreographed piece.
Who we are looking for:
- People prepared to give their time to a workshop to develop the work and a subsequent performance.
- You can be an artist, dancer, student or someone with a general interest, 18 years or over
- There is no requirement to come from a dance or performance background, there will be no set dance steps to learn
What you will be asked to do:
- Take part in a day workshop led by the artist that will incorporate learning performance techniques which will lead into development of the performance. Workshop is Friday 18th October from 11am
- Take part in the durational performance around the Helsinki Art Museum. Performance is on Friday 18th October from 4pm
- Wear a costume for the duration of the performance
Overall this aims to be an enjoyable experience where you become a part of a new and evolving piece and get to meet other new like minded people.

Performance installation duo, ROOMS, is looking for seven to nine performers to perform in Ritual No. 1: Counting Birds, for Dimanche Rouge Experimental Performance Festival which Ptarmigan is co-producing in Helsinki. One rehearsal is required on October 16 (3pm-5pm), 2013 with performances on October 17th and October 18th (2.30pm - 5.30pm). The performance is three hours long and requires very little performance experience but endurance to stand and speak with minimal movements is necessary. Counting Birds is interesting to perform as it provides a meditating experience for the audience as well as the performer.
ROOMS, is comprised of husband and wife, Marrakesh and Todd Frugia. They are a performance art installation duo from Chicago, USA.ROOMS maintains the belief that the power of art lives within the visceral reaction to the questions that mystery and ambiguity provoke.Please visit roomsgallery.com for past artwork.
