Nordberg Movement and Elle Sofe Sara at UA Talks X Ice Hot

On friday July 1st Magnus Nordberg and Elle Sofe Sara will discuss Dance in the age of ecocrisis in front of a live audience. The talk will later be released as a podcast. 

The climate crisis is one of the most urgent challenges of our times. New reports keep showing us that we are running out of time. Systemic and structural change needs to take place on multiple levels simultaneously.

What can we do with dance in the midst of a global crisis? How do we move towards more sustainable working structures? What are the future horizons of dance (touring, working, international collaborations)? What will we have to give up, what will we gain?

Ki Nurmenniemi, Contemporary art curator, art writer, and doctoral researcher in interdisciplinary sustainability sciences

Elle Sofe Sara, Choreographer, director and filmmaker,
Magnus Nordberg, Founder and creative producer of Nordberg Movement

Helsinki-based antiracist and feminist arts community UrbanApa joins Ice Hot in creating a series of conversations around some of the most urgent topics in contemporary dance. During three consecutive sessions UA Talks X Ice Hot brings together artists, curators and producers to talk about dance in the age of the eco crisis, about inclusivity, diversity, power, and responsibility.

UA Talks will be recorded and released as podcasts later on.
