Meri Pajunpää  

Meri Pajunpää is a performing artist working in Finland and Belgium. She has been working internationally as a dancer and choreographer/co-creator in numerous projects over the past 14 years. Pajunpää worked in Brussels on research directed by the artist Maria Ferreira Silva. Through this project, they explored the possible ways of applying the concept of neuroplasticity to dance. At the end of the residency, on the 26th of June, they did an open showing at Grand Studio Brussels, a performance called ‘Reaching Through, Looking Across’, and shared the results of the project with the audience. Pajunpää continued to the Netherlands to perform her solo work ‘As It Burns’ at the GIVE-A-DANS! Festival at the Academy of Theatre and Dance in Amsterdam on the 28th of June. As It Burns is a performance that grew from a swirling moment of global and personal changes, in which sound, light, movement and text comes together in a conversation vibrating on the surface between chaos and order.
