Warjakka: art in the woods and the sands

Rita Marcalo and Silja Tuovinen have arrived in Varjakka, where TaikaBox is very lucky to be hosting Warjakka Art Residency, kickstarting the CROWD international dance exchange programme for 2022.

Backed by TaikaBox’s Summer worker Niko Auvinen and the residency mentor – dance artist Julian Owusu – TaikaBox cofounders Tanja Råman and John Collingswood guided Silja and Rita through Warjakka Art Path, Warjakka Community Gardens and the the Kalamaja art hub located on the shore of Varjakka Bay.

Some photos by the local paparazzi.

The mosquitos were quite wild in the forest, and everybody had a mosquito dance improvisation, such a simple and irresistible inspiration.
