Household Dance Protocol

The Household Dance Protocol (HDP) examines our relationship with
housework through dance and somatic movement techniques. The
project runs between 2017 and 2019 and offers activities such as
dance-household-workshops, podcast radio programs, installations and
live performances in Turku and elsewhere. HDP asks things like what is
the difference between dance movements and household movements
and why do we rather go to the gym to lift wights than carrying home
our own grocery bags.

The purpose of the HDP is to create a discussion about the status of
household work in our society and together with audiences and
participants, imagine an alternative reality where household tasks are
important and valued movement rituals in our lives.
HDP is initiated by the Swedish artist and theater maker Sandrina
Lindgren and is carried out together with the composer and Qigong
teacher Antti Tolvi and in collaboration with several other Turku-based

The HDP is supported by the Swedish Cultural Foundation, Art
Promotion Center Finland, Varsinais Suomen Maakuntarahasto, TOP
säätiö and the Regional Dance Center of Western Finland.
