Thank you for the shared time! Thank you for attending and participating in Moving in November 2022. Thank you for your good feedback and enthusiasm for this year’s edition!

It was a truly special moment to present this year’s program with artists from abroad and from Helsinki to you. Engage in conversations and build further connections.

An edition concluding two special long-term projects: The Hut by Jared Gradinger, Angela Schubot, Stefan Rusconi, Alm Gnista & Shelley Etkin and Nature Untitled by Veli Lehtovaara, Eija-Liisa Ahtila & Jani Hietanen, projects we started talking about already in 2019. It’s nourishing to see and share these outcomes that have been a travel of exchange, inspiration, trust, and engagement throughout these years between the artists and us.

We are more than content about the presented works, that involved local performers and created an intensive dialogue with the local performing arts scene, Feijoada by Calixto Neto, Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine by Mette Edvardsen and DAWN by Sheena McGrandles. We want to especially thank the local artists Geoffrey Erista, Edit Williams & Carolina Florio Castro, Freja Bäckman, Satu Herrala & Mikko Hyvönen and Herman Nyby, Kauri Sorvari, Riikka Theresa Innanen & Alen Nsambu for their engagement and trust and of course the artistic teams around these works.

Moving in November continues spreading over the Helsinki area. Finding the right location for each work we like to present. We leave our traces, not only in your memory but hopefully also in the areas Moving in November’s program appears. The Hut for example can still be visited from the outside at Stoa’s square for a while before we move it to a gymnasium in the Töölö area to become an unusual classroom.

In case you are in the mood for Moving in November´s afterglow, the Instant reflections by Nina Vurdelja on the works presented during the festival are up. And don’t forget to listen to Memory Garden by Jared Gradinger during your next walk.

For now, a warm and big thank you to the artists and their lovely working groups, that presented their works during this year’s festival! Namely: Calixto Neto, Jared Gradinger, Angela Schubot, Stefan Rusconi, Alm Gnista, Shelley Etkin & Suvi Kemppainen, Meg Stuart & Damaged Goods, Jeroen Peeters, Mette Edvardsen, Veli Lehtovaara, Eija-Liisa Ahtila & Jani Hietanen, Eisa Jocson, Sheena McGrandles, Tuomas Laitinen, Cherish Menzo and the hosts of the Soup Talks: Antonia Atarah, Karolina Ginman, Anna Talasniemi, Paul O’Neill, Vincent Roumagnac, Maija Mustonen, Anna Kozonina, River Lin and Otso Lähdeoja.

And equally a warm and big thank you to our partner venues for hosting us and thinking along and to our funders for their support.
