Toisissa tiloissa
Tänä vuonna tulee kuluneeksi 20 vuotta siitä, kun Toisissa tiloissa -kollektiivi sai alkunsa! Vuonna 2004 toimimme Nälkäteatterin piirissä. Aloitimme toimintamme silloin harjoitedemonstraatioilla, joita esitimme Helsingissä ja ympäri Suomea. Sittemmin olemme kehittäneet jo yli 200 harjoitetta, joita olemme esittäneet osallistavissa esityksissä ja demonstraatioissa sekä opettaneet työpajoissa ympäri maailmaa. On siis aika juhlaan! Hurjan suuri kiitos Suomen Kulttuurirahasto, jonka avustuksella järjestämme tänä vuonna kaikkea jännää ja kivaa. Mukana juhlaa toteuttamassa ovat myös Teatterimuseo ja Esitystaiteen keskus. Juhlavuotta mahdollistaa myös toiminta-avustuksilla Taiteen edistämiskeskus ja Helsingin kaupunki.Kerromme kaikesta tästä lisää pian!Kuvat ovat Harjoitteita-esityksestä vuodelta 2004 Postitalon Postisalista.

MARKET-EXERCISE AT ESITYSTELTTA ON 26.8. (PERFORMANCE TENT)

Everyone goes to the store, everyone buys, consumes, and encounters consumption in various
environments. Market is a hyper mundane dive into the experiences of consumption on a
micro-level.

The presentation consists of simple collaborative physical exercises and the Market space that we create based on these exercises. In this way, Market provides a visitation in shopping, without the actual commercial environment, thus inviting you to experience everyday activities in a new way.
