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.
Human space workshop invites participants to collectively embark on a journey through Tallinn using an incorrect map. Together we will celebrate and document entries, exits and boundaries in our search for the edge of the landscape through a series of drawing, sound and movement led exercises. The workshop examines our physical relationship to different spacial environments and ways in which it might be documented and represented in an image, movement or sound.
The workshop is based on the combined interdisciplinary practices of Sara Evelyn-Brown and Meera Shakti Osborne, both scenographers from the UK with a visual artist background. Time, space, movement, sound, map making and journeying, are key themes within their collaborative work.
We like games and rules. Finding ways of creating work collectively, exploring winning and losing, embracing everything. The relationship between the body and the things that we make is also important and a central part of the process.
The workshop is open to all. It may be of specific interest to those working in disciplines including: scenography, performance, sound and visual art.
