Persephone Variations (In A Shopping Mall)

Salla Hakkola, Ossi Koskelainen, Sikri Lehko, Tim Page

Dayjob Collective presents a meditation on fertility and the seasons at the Tullintori Shopping Centre (on the public premises and in the Tampere Biennale pop-up gallery).

Dayjob Collective explores meeting points between new music and performance art. Founded in 2017, the collective searches for new modes of collaboration across artistic disciplines from music to theater, visual, and media art.

Salla Hakkola is a composer, performance artist, and virtuoso pioneer on the electric harp. Combining music and performance art in her own work, she also composes music for Rovio, the creators of Angry Birds.

Ossi Koskelainen has been the artistic director for companies such as Ylioppiasteatteri. His works occupy the borderland between contemporary theatre and performance art.

Sikri Lehko is a saxophone player with a degree from the Sibelius Academy, and a fascination with diversity and collaboration - in settings from the orchestra to chamber music and solo performance.

Timothy Page, one of Finland’s leading contemporary composers, creates works that play with style, context, body, materials and space.

Persephone Variations (In a Shopping Mall) is supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
