Open-studio sharing: Invalid:Dated

  • Helsinki International Artist Programme Suomenlinna B 28 / 2 00190 Helsinki Finland (map)

Open Studio sharing for the first development of Invalid:Dated, a new dance theatre work from Matt Shilcock, in collaboration with Marjaterttu Willman and Melinda Tyquin.

The second instalment in the Eujeanix series; Invalid:Dated will explore eugenic practices throughout history, creating nebulous representations of historical eras with significant eugenic events.
Scenes in this work comprise of artistic renditions of factual events, presented in a non-bias manner, to blur the line of morality and have the viewer really question their values, actions and role in society. Invalid:Dated aims to have the audience question and explore their own moral standing on issues such as racial segregation, religious extremity, euthanasia (both voluntary and enforced), stigmatisation of mental and physical health and disability, and inequalities and prejudice in gender and sex.
