Esitysradio a series of conversations on performances in a podcast audio format.
It is a project by choreographer and dancer Janina Rajakangas, choreographer and dancer Mira Kautto and Tuomas Laitinen. We have published 53 episodes since we started in December 2015. We have also collaborated with Moving in November dance festival and Zodiak – Center for New Dance. In 2021 we have been on a break due to other work and life events.
After experiencing a performance we talk with the authors. We talk about the performance, the making of it and art in general. The project aims to enrich the dialogue that surrounds performances. We want to bring coffee break conversations within the reach of audiences and challenge the artists to articulate their views.
We are interested in why artists make performances and what they are about.
