Free Improvisation is a regular event which follows the simple structure of show + jam. The event takes place every fortnight (give or take a few days), and begins with a short, informal performance before the space and tools of sound making are opened up to any and all. Come along to play, listen and meet. This time round we have Mart Soo performing.
20:00 Mart Soo
20:30 Open Jam
For the Open Jam, we have a piano and a P.A system available.
We request that all attendees bring a small contribution either for Ptarmigan or for the group in attendance that night. The contribution can be of any size, and can be anything for the event (snacks, drinks, etc) or any form of direct donation.
Behind the velvet curtains of the Ungravity Kiosk lie four portraits. Each portrait occupies its own separate but intrinsically linked temporal and physical space. These seemingly unrelated poses await your purikura adornments – pick from a selection designed by the artists or make your very own. The portraits wait patiently for your special touch.
The Ungravity Kiosk takes the familiar Japanese photo booth experience and stretches it out to a strained speed. It takes the idea of the sequence and the still frames that occupy a progressive narrative, and questions the nature of these simultaneously still and active images. The additional interactive elements serve to reveal this conflict between stillness and movement, whilst also providing the simple joy of trying to fit one thing inside another.
Unlike the purikura booth, however, the figures in the portraits do not demand to be made cuter; they can also just as well be made ugly, angry or horrifying. They welcome you to change their appearance and alter their characters.
Hannah Harkes (1989) and Tessa Androutsopoulos (1981) met at Gray’s School of Art in Scotland, where they studied together in the Printmaking department from 2007-2010. They have since developed their own separate practices and continue to share strong interests in the narrative sequence, the creation of characters and the printmakerly process of layering, disassembling and playing with images.
This workshop looks at home cooked apple jam and pancakes methods and serves as an introduction to the youth eco-social project Red Riding Hoods. We will start by cooking delicious and aromatic jam using the technique we got from the hands of the rural citizen master in Häädemeeste village. It's simple, tasty, and natural!
We will also introduce our youth project Red Riding Hoods which began in August 2012 with an 8-day journey across villages in Ida-Viru and Pärnu Counties, where we learned about local history, traditions and rural life in general. Here you can find more information about the project.
This workshop is limited to 20 participants and is free.
It is going to be a very special movie night.
Come and see how two movies share the same screen. At the same time. Blockbusters will be sharing blows, hold each other in chokes and framelocks.
To get by the cacophony the volume knob will be passed to the audience for them to decide which movie rules over the other. Who will be the last movie standing?!
P.S. We are not taking bets.

It is time to wash your favorite woolen sweater, cleanse those wool socks and show care to those special mittens that will be ruined in the washing machine. Join us for the wool care workshop; bring a bucket and some towels, we provide the soap.
Live music, social intercourse, wool washing and repair.
Cash bar and light refreshments, live audio, we provide the soap.

With the video screen switched off, we will move and dance to the uninterrupted soundtrack of the 1975 film by French director Louis Malle.
Bring with you a few songs or pieces of music which you want to dance to together. The day will begin with a brief warm-up, followed by collective dancing to each other's songs. After this, we'll turn on Black Moon and dance to the audio in its entirety.
We will be dancing from 1pm to 6pm but feel free to join in, sit back, leave or rejoin at any time.
Led by Kaspar Aus (choreographer) and Hannah Harkes (artist).
An evening class in figure writing with a nude model. The class will cover a series of short, 10 minute poses to get the ink running as well as some longer poses, in which the writers can experiment with their preferred techniques in greater depth.
During the evening we will explore writing the figure in black & white; tonal writing; colour; chiaroscuro text; the figure in their environment and the figure in motion.
Participants should bring with them writing tools of their choice (pen and paper, typewriter, laptop...) though pens and paper will also be available during the class for those who require them.
