TALK video series (2017)
TALK is Zodiak – Center for New Dance´s workshop method, that is invented for teaching languages. The workshops are thought by a dance artist together with the language teacher. The workshops offer functional, movement based ways of learning languages.
The workshops have been born as part of Zodiak´s outreach. They are based on Zodiak’s kinesthetic language workshops that were organized in 2007. In 2012, Zodiak received the Vuoden kieliteko award presented annually by the Finnish Language Teachers’ Association and the Otavan kirjasäätiö Foundation for its creative method for developing language skills among young people.
In the years 2013-2016 thirteen different schools in Helsinki, Turku and Ypäjä have participated in the three-year TALK – taidetta ja liikettä kielten opetukseen -project, where dance artists have conducted functional, movement based language classes regularly. Sari Palmgren directed and edited 2017 TALK video series.
