POST POST NATURE is an interactive performance in public space, which is dealing with current ecological situation and studying the concept of performance. POST POST NATURE is sketch of nature in future.
. POST POST NATURE is an attempt to make people stop and consider their consuming habits. POST POST NATURE is a dystopia of nature in future when wild nature is destroied. It is a fake nature made of trash. In the performances we make fake nature installation and study different levels and ways to be present in a performance..
POST POST NATURE is strongly inspired by the pictures of nature and oceans full of trash. It is a critic towards the way people produce trash by simply buying food from grocery store. The material we use in the performance is collected from our homes. It is the amount of trash we produce in 3 weeks.
The performance is based on different scores and actions such as building the installation, dancing in nature, talking with audience, eating and studying ones state of presence while performing.

TRASH LAND is a performance created by Satu Rinnetmäki and Anni Puuperä. It is a work about objects and movement. It is a performance for one performer and a huge amount of different kind of objects. ”Trash land” is a place where everything is constantly changing and moving. It is an amusement park of materialism.
Trash land is multilayered as a performance. Our starting point was in researching change choreographically and through humanity. Change emerges physically, spatially, in time and in behavioral as part of the performer`s habit of being in the moment. In the performance we study change also through aspects of society and audience-performer relationship.
The choreographical basis of Trash land is on movement research combined to researching of human behavioral towards objects. The essential theme in these movement research scores is to study change in movement and in actions.
Through the aspect of society we investigate consuming habits in Trash land. Number of stimulations and impulses are endless in our society nowadays. In this performance project we have redefined the concept of ”trash”: for us trash means all the unnecessary owned material. Through over consuming, we also produce more of this trash. Through capitalism the habit of being in the world is to buy and buy new stuff even we won`t really need it. Could we maybe change something or is capitalism so strongly present in our everyday lives that it`s impossible to divest? Is it enough that we try to organize stuff or should we change our habits as consumers?
We consider Trash land as a picture of a woman living in western capitalist world, where we need material to fulfill our needs and make us happy. As a performance Trash land criticizes the ostentatious consumption culture in western countries which we consider as one of the problems behind ecological crisis. It is also a critic against the way many women are raised to get pleasure from shopping. For us it is an interesting and important question how to make people understand the problems of conscious consumption.

Band is is a project which studies the borders between copying and taking influence of something. It is a band that makes cover-performances about music, film and performance art.
This Band has two bass-players and two dancers. We also invite special guest stars to our gigs.
In this project we want to comment the unclear copy right situation in the field of contemporary dance and performance. We also want to renew and research our working methods as performance makers. Our goal is to work like a cover band and study what kind of performances that creates.
Band is a platform where its members can try, fail, laugh and become superstars!

"Company and variations" is a movement composition about collaboration.
We have made this choreography together and tried to be as democratical as possible when making the artistic decisions. We have studied the theme collaboration in practice and this performance is a result of our work.
In this performance we are working as a group and we are trying to figure out what is collaboration.
This performance is dedicated to working as a group.
