NMH at the Venice Biennale

Jennifer Torrence and asamisimasa with the project Music with the Real, are billed to appear during this year's biennale, along with other Nordic artistic research projects.

The Venice Biennale this year contains a side program called Research Pavilion. Uniarts Helsinki has collected contributions from several Nordic music and art higher education institutions to this pavilion for artistic research, and put together a programme of exhibitions and cross-artistic projects.

Camino Events

In the cross-artistic programme from 16th to 17th June, Camino Events - after the exhibition room where the pavilion is held - houses artistic research fellow Jennifer Torrence’ and François Sarhan's production No Say No Way, played here at NMH February last year.

Music with the real is an artistic research project at NMH, led by Håkon Stene and Henrik Hellstenius. During Camino Events, asamisimasa as a part of the project performs works by Johannes Kreidler, Matthew Shlomowitz and Hellstenius. The ensemble consists of Tanja Orning and former fellows Håkon Stene, Anders Førisdal and Ellen Ugelvik, as well as Kristine Tjøgersen. The concert is the same day as Jennifer's performance, June 16th.

Camino Events is a collaborative project between the Sibelius Academy, Darla Crispin from Nord ART (Arne Nordheim Centre for Artistic Research in Music) and the Academy of Music and Drama at the University of Gothenburg.
