Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
How ta tawk & dans rite is a site specific participatory performance incorporating dance, live music and digital art. Joey Chua Poh Yi, Rhys Turner, Anna Rouhu, and Guadalupe López will explore interchangeable professional roles and cultural norms in a performance which questions both the rites of passage into a given culture and the correctness of doing things right. Thematically How ta tawk & dans rite will link narrative vignettes of searching for love whilst taking a comic look at experiences encountered in foreign cultures.
