Final(e)affect

12.11.2021 - 13.10.2021
Location: Valssaamo, Cable Factory/Kaapelitehdas

Final(e)affect is the fourth event in the Causatum Live Cinema series, on a concept by Marek Pluciennik: the events are purely committed to practices using improvised live moving image and sound. The focus is on the ephemeral nature of moving image, when created live without a script or score. The events delve into the subconscious of the image and sound creation, in an attempt to be well ahead of film and sound narrative realization, usually created and mediated through the written word.

The gathered artists will try to engage the audience in and with improvisation to be able to commune with the state one reaches during a heightened form of awareness in the course of a performance without script or plan. The performer as well as an audience member may have had past experiences as witnesses or performers, these experiences continuously inform our body and amplify the present moment to affect us into effect, to prompt doing.
