Household Dance Protocol / Hushållets Dansprotokoll

2017 -> ongoing project

Exploring the potential of everyday movements

Household Dance Protocol/ Hushållets Dansprotokoll/ Huushollin Tanssiprotokolla (HDP) is a project that investigates our relation to household work through dance and somatic- and physical movement methods. The project’s aim is to awaken a discussion about the household movement’s status in society and to offer a playground in which household tasks are creative movement rituals or pauses of physical and spiritual contemplation.

Between 2017 and 2019 HDP will offer different household workshops, podcasts, installations and performances.

HDP is supported by Svenska Kulturfonden, Varsinais-Suomen Kulttuurirahasto, Taiteen edistämiskeskus, Läntinen Tanssin Aluekeskus and TOP säätiö and carried out in collaboration with Grus Grus Teatteri
