Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as/at Ptarmigan during these years.
In theory perfhop is a group who experiments with all kinds of ideas/ actions/ gestures/ sounds/ words etc that might possibly look/ sound/ feel like what is termed as performance art. In practice perfhop has occurred sporadically throughout 2012, at first monthly from January-June and then as a three week intensive residency in July at the performance centre in Helsinki. The group members have fluctuated.
Currently perfhop is quietly sitting in wait to be realised again in the near future. If YOU like the idea of a fluctuating group who meets to experiment with ideas around performance and you like the title of 'perfhop' please take this idea on board in a small or big way and please email helsinki (at) ptarmigan.fi to keep us informed of perfhop's continued lineage.
