TelepART: Peltomaa/Fraanje/Perkola: ÄÄNI
31 August 2018
Ankkabarock, Vantaa, Finland

Musicians Mikko Perkola (gamba and effects), Aino Peltomaa (vocals and harp) and Harmen Fraanje (piano) will perform together for the first time at the Ankkabarock festival in Vantaa, Finland in August 2018. In an innovative concert approach titled ÄÄNI (sound), they combine medieval music, chants and jazz improvisation, inviting the audience to move around the space and improvise. The aim is to create a unique, strong feeling of togetherness.

The three musicians are all performing widely and regularly in their own countries and abroad. They have collaborated with internationally renowned artists (Kenny Wheeler, Mats Eilertsen, Laurens Dreyfus, Dominique Vellard,Mika Karhu) and made records for eminent labels (ECM; Naxos, Gramophone). They also lead their own groups (trio Reijseger Fraanje Sylla, Harmony of the Spheres). According to the website AllAboutJazz “Harmen Fraanje is emerging as one of the most impressive young European pianists of the past decade.” Fraanje teaches at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Besides performing, Peltomaa teaches, trains choirs and leads retreats and courses combining silent chant singing, meditation and yoga.

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux supports the performance as part of the TelepART internationalisation programme.

RE/defining Finnish Contemporary Art & Design

Our project focusing on Finnish art and design stretches across the entire year and aims to highlight Finnish designers in central Europe. Together with Brussels based Spazio Nobile gallery we will be participating in several prominent design fairs as well as organise a number of exhibitions, all the while striving to redefine the wide range of skills and expertise in design and art that can be found in Finland. The overall project is curated by the founder of the Spazio Nobile gallery, Lise Coirier, and the director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux, Kati Laakso. The project also extends to the spaces of our colleagues at the Finnish Institute in Paris in the spring and summer of 2019.

International Women’s Day – Breakfast Discussion

Do girls and boys have equal opportunities in education and self-expression? Join the Nordic diplomatic representations and cultural institutes in Brussels for a breakfast debate on International Women's Day. In the Nordic countries, researchers and educators have been studying the subject for decades, but we still have a lot to learn. With the panel discussion, we wish to take a look at what role gender plays in education and learning in our systems today.

MYTHS AND DEMONS – closing debate

Almost 30 years after the end of the Cold War and 15 years after the accession of the states of Central and Eastern Europe to the EU, the European continent remains trapped in an understanding going back more than a century of the nation state as a territorially bounded community, and struggles to implement transnational or even de-territorialized forms of citizenship. What is the future of the European continent 100 years from now? BOZAR and Archa Theatre (Prague) invite you to Myths and Demons, the closing participative debate of the year-long project 1918 European Dreams of Modernity.
