bodyBUILDINGbody dance performance at TAB main exhibition


The main exhibition of TAB Body Building will offer a backdrop and context for the premiere of dance performance bodyBUILDINGbody by Maarja Tõnisson on Thursday, 17th September at 19. The performance will create a sensual spacial collage of movement, sound, video and the installations of the exhibition in Estonian Museum of Architecture. Tickets available for €10 at Piletilevi and at venue.

It is a sensuous space that invites the viewer at the heart of the situation , but leaves the freedom to move around as in a usual exhibition. The performance guides senses with heightened sensitivity to wonder around and reveal the invisible – layers, conditions, relationships between human bodies and objects. In the core of everything is the moving and reactive body, which in conjunction with its environment- sounds, bodies, video, materiality and space- highlights sensational and perceptional processes and experiences. It is a constructed and raw landscape of sensations.

Maarja Tõnisson is a freelance dance artist. She graduated choreography from the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy and studied at the University of the Arts Berlin (HZT). In February 2015 her first solopiece "bodySHIFTbody" was premiered at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava, which was also the first collaboration with Tanel V Kulla. Maarja´s creation explores the body-mind relationship, searching for kinesthetic empathy and synesthetic sensations.

Performances on 17.09 and 01.10 at the Museum of Estonian Architecture.
