Other Spaces (also known by the Finnish title Toisissa tiloissa) is a Helsinki based performing arts collective. Founded in 2004, the group consists of around artists from several fields of arts.
The working Principles of the collective are:
I continuous training
II exercise as a mode of performance
III metamorphosis as the leitmotif of exercises.
Other Spaces invents and develops collective physical exercises through which people can enter in contact with modes of experience and being other than human. The aim of the group is to change together. The group performs its exercises regularly in public practical demonstrations and organizes workshops, Secret Retraining Camps. Following the same principles, the group has created also more thematic performances, like Aniara (2006), Odradek Variations (2007) and Golem Variations (2011).
Groups latest participatory performances are Reindeer Safari (2010) and Car Park (2013). Coming up in 2014 - Wolf Safari.
