Folk Narratives with Hanna Tuulikki

Join artist, composer and performer Hanna Tuulikki as she shares her multi-disciplinary art with us.
Hanna Tuulikki is an artist, composer and performer based in Scotland. In research-led projects, she works with voice and gesture, investigating the ways in which the body communicates beyond and before words. With a particular interest in the practice of ‘mimesis’ within musical and movement traditions across cultures, her work explores the place of folk narratives, memory, ritual and technology within specific environments. Informed by contemporary understandings of ‘naturecultures’ and ‘gender performance’, she gravitates towards the spaces ‘in-between’, be it human-and-more- than-human, male-and-female, or ancient-and-contemporary, considering the sounding body as a meeting point between self and the world. Tuulikki’s innovative practice spans site-specific performance, audiovisual installation and interactive new media, blending together vocal composition, choreography, costume and visual score drawings. Her critically acclaimed work has been commissioned and presented by organisations internationally, across visual, musical and performing arts. For the session, she will introduce a selection of her recent works.
