KALEVALA KLEINHANS

KALEVALA KLEINHANS
A Kalevala Duo, Playing Bones: Pia Lindman with Kalevala treatment "conducting" music with Wooden Cities at Kleinhans

A Kalevala Duo, Playing Bones commissioned by CS1 Projects

Pia Lindman, an internationally recognized performance artist, Professor of environmental art at Aalto University, and a certified practitioner of Kalevala bone-setting, will create a new piece with music ensemble Wooden Cities: A Kalevala Duo, Playing Bones. By once again treating this ancient healing technique as an art form, the wellspring of cultural knowledge that helped found Finland comes full circle. The Kalevala is a 2000 year-old epic poem, which inspired the great Finnish modernists like Eliel and Eero Saarinen, who designed Kleinhans Music Hall. Performed on this stage, Playing Bones celebrates the rich spectrum of the wisdom contained within this text. A result of many years of investigation into the body and its place within the cultural space, Lindman's performance piece responds to a contemporary desire to mend the fission between science and art, healing and creativity. Conceived as a “Studio on the Stage” project, CS1 Projects’ commission will be the only collaboration between a Finn and Buffalo artists for FinnFest USA 2015. Check out video sample of the performance HERE and photo documentation HERE.
