Patriotic Body: Training

In this dance solo, the performer researches patriotism through their own body. They ask how one can address the effects of war on the body, which belongs to the aggressor country. The artwork was done through studying and training a fictional

patriotic muscle. The training is process-oriented and the artwork evolves and remains in a sketch form without a final destination point.

 

The performance has been shown in the city centre of Zurich, Switzerland, in front of Suomi-Venäjä Seura in Helsinki and in Outokumpu Old Mine in Outokumpu.

 

Dash Che is a transnational queer dancer, performer, and teaching artist who has been living and making artwork in Finland since 2019.

2nd Skins

This solo performance presents a sophisticated animal, a human, in bodily dialogue with other skins. The skins are animal and alien;  jointly familiar and strange at the same time.  A delicate state of being emerges where the creature is concurrently attentive to itself and the environment. This performance premiered in February 2022 at the Helsinki Theatre Museum.
