MoA SLAM 2012 results: this year, it’s beef.
16.05.2012 - Johanna MacDonald
Just attended MoA SLAM at Jätkäsaari (and wielded a wicked timer and a bell… when we say 10 minutes, we mean it). A week ago or so I had the pleasure of workshopping with the five contestants, helping bounce creative ideas around and dish out performance tips. All I can say is I’m really proud of all the performers, who really stepped up to the plate and tried something new. They were all a bunch of nervous things before the show, but one after another they impressed and strutted. Some of my iPhone pics are a bit rubbish as the lens doesn’t much care for stage lighting, so just think “atmosphere.”
Our living.aalto.fi editor Johanna takes on Aalto Talk for the month of May, bringing you the Daily MoA blog - a steady flow of observations and information on what's been happening in Jätkäsaari and around town. With interests ranging from performance art to game culture to bike hacking to politics, expect her blog to be an infinitely curious take on all things MoA.
Johanna wears an awful lot of hats: performance artist, stand-up comic, writer, actor, designer, cycling nut, sport lover, cultural hacktivist--a surprising number of them professionally. She believes imagination makes the world go round.
