Balett

SPRING 2019

How to catch the lyrical movements of ballet on paper? How is the body aligned when the ballet dancer rises up to relevé en pointe?

The focus in this croquis evening lies in observing ballet movements and the ballerina’s anatomical structure. Professional ballet dancer Jessi Räty acts as a model. She's graduated from the Finnish National Opera’s Ballet School in 2017. Räty has performed in the Finnish National Opera’s stage productions of Swan Lake and the Nutcracker as an apprentice, and as a child starring as the child principal in the Nutcracker.

Acrobatics

FALL 2019

This autumn’s movement croquis brings new challenges to drawing when circus artist Petri Ekqvist performs acrobatic moves in Kunsthalle Helsinki’s exhibition space. Acrobatics is the performance of extraordinary human feats of balance, motor coordination and agility. The focus of the Acrobatics Croquis lies in observing the connection between acrobatics and movement: acrobatic moves and handstand poses challenge the drawer to percept the human body in a new way.

Petri Ekqvist is an art and well-being professional with 20 years of experience as a dancer and circus artist. He has performed widely in Finland and abroad in various productions on land, at sea and in the air. Petri works currently as a dancer, dance teacher and personal trainer as well as realizing well-being services for companies and their personnel.
