We are pleased to announce a special Extended Edition of the HMP, to take place in Tanssiteatteri Hurjaruuth on the 9th and 10th of December.

This time the group will meet already on the day preceding the performance giving them more time to get to know each other, dicuss their views on improvisation as well as scores and ideas for the performances. All the artists will be present on both nights, performing in different constellations as well as a full size group, making for a very special version of the established HMP format.

The artists participating in this HMP Extended Edition are:
Giorgio Convertito (dance), Riikka Theresa Innanen (dance), Marisa Grande (Ita/NL, dance), Elena Kakaliagou (french horn), Pia Lindy (dance), Alejandro Olarte (guitar and electronics), Marko Timlin (percussions and electronics) and Barnaby Tree (UK/Ger, cello).

In the next few days we will publish on these pages, more information on the featured performers and an interview with each one of them, discussing their ideas on improvisation.
