Choreographer Sonja Jokiniemi's new work Howl is a performance project and an exhibition. Bodies of painting, sculpture and live performance mesh with each other and gear towards extended beings and hybrid bodies through interdependencies of human and non-human.
The work consists of multiple short pieces as moving paintings where sounds touch, and textures speak, referring to drawing works by Jokiniemi. Duet format explored together with dance artist Maija Karhunen is a kind of re-wording of language through the unfolding of multisensorial bodies.
