As a closing ritual within Temple of Manufacturing, COM-PA-NY’s Johan Olin and Aamu Song have choreographed a ceremony invoking the spirits of manufacturing that they have encountered in their ten years of research. The performance piece will incorporate costumes that COM-PA-NY has created for the occasion, and will utilize the shape and facade of Storefront’s gallery space to further explore the feeling of sacredness that the duo encountered while visiting spaces of production all over the world.
Closing Ritual: Spirits of Manufacturing will feature, as master of ceremonies, Toni Toivanen, formerly chef de partie at NOMA, a renowned Copenhagen-based restaurant that was known for its Nordic culinary innovations. For the occasion, Chef Toivanen will cook a series of ceremonial dishes.
This performance is supported by the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York.
