Dancing outside the box (open workshop) // Pia Lindy (FI)

What happens to our moving, thinking and choice making when working as artists in different contexts and environments?  

Exploring, sharing and reflecting on experiences, ideas and questions on process-oriented artistic practices and potentialities of dance, movement and improvisation in everyday life and society. 

Pia is known for her multi-stranded, durational works that interweaves the worlds of contemporary dance and wider society.  

In this workshop she will introduce and review some of her projects, sharing her thinking/moving processes and organisational strategies that shaped them.  

She will also share some of the physical practices that she has developed for both working inside and beyond the walls of the dance studio. 

Pia Lindy (FI) performer/dancer/writer, has produced various solo pieces & projects and worked in collaboration with artists of different fields in Finland and other countries as well being a member of several committees organizing festivals and events. Pia Lindy graduated from Amsterdam’s School for New Dance Development in 1995 and since then has worked on solo/group works and collaborative projects with different artists, professionals and other people both in Finland and abroad. Pia´s working, facilitating and performance practices are based on improvisation, experiential- and process-oriented approaches, and happen in many different environments and contexts. The work draws also from sociological and societal thinking, and from a longtime engagement with somatic movement practices.

Pia has written articles on dance and movement in the surrounding society and how contemporary dance and movement artists based in Finland are working in different environments and contexts. Pia has been a member of Zodiak the Center for New Dance´s artistic team with the artistic director on the programming performances in 2016-2019 and she has been a founding member of the Sidestep and Lonely in the Rain? festivals and also a member of other artistic boards and committees.
