In Let the wandering talk is on it´s own behalf multidisciplinary dance piece, choreographer and dancer Nadja Pärssinen and sound artist Stephen Stamper have studied the wandering in a relation to the sound and video material works from the 12 hours of hiking in Trolltunga-hiking road in Norway. At the heart of the solo’s interdisciplinary work is to observe the choreographic thinking, moods and longing that emerge from walking, bringing to light a relationship to vast natural landscapes, corporeality, mythologies, memories and use of technology pierced by a video camera lens.

What kind of things does wandering reveal and make visible, and how could it open up into an interdisciplinary entity, taking into account the natural environment and female corporeality? are important questions for Pärssinen.

Length of the dance piece is 35-40 min. After the performance, there will be an artist talk, music, chocolate and wine provided.
