Post in a TDPT Research Blog

An international peer-reviewed journal ‘Theatre, Dance and Performance Training’ has published a special issue 9. 2. in July 2018 focusing on ‘Training for Immersive, Interactive and Participatory Theatre’. SHH wrote and edited a two-part contribution for the issue.

The first part has been published in the TDPT research blog here. The post is openly accessible.

Research Exposition in NIVEL

A research article by SHH was published in the NIVEL publication on 30. 8. 2017. The publication celebrates the 10 year anniversary of Performing Arts Research Centre Tutke.

Power and Prejudice

I wrote an article about my current artistic work to the latest edition of Teatteri&Tanssi+Sirkus, a performing arts periodical published in Finland. Unfortunately the article is only in Finnish at the moment.

Imagination, Engagement & Education

This post is about a one-day symposium ‘Imagination, Engagement & Education’ organized by Punchdrunk Enrichment in London in November 2016. The whole post only in Finnish (sorry about that).

Comments on The Real Health Center

‘There should be more performances like The Real Health Center, because participatory theatre could make many young people more interested in theatre.’

Miila Tammisto (14 y.)

‘The atmosphere was funny in part because the participants have no idea what’s going to happen next […] The number of people who can attend the performance is limited, but for the lucky ones the Health Center provides a unique experience of art where you can affect the content yourself.’

Maija Jelkänen, Teatteri&Tanssi+Sirkus (‘Theatre&Dance+Circus’) magazine

‘It was a very different kind of experience than in our normal receptions. It was… sensual. It took the patient perhaps a long way into the soul of the patient on patient’s own terms.’

Päivi Polo, MD, Clinical teacher (University of Turku)

Interview at YLE

SHH was interviewed by the Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE about participatory and immersive performances in relation to The Real Health Center. You can listen to the program here (only in Finnish).

This page is for selected ramblings on various subjects ranging from acting techniques to experimental contemporary dance to clubs.

Finnish and English parts of the blog include slightly different posts.
