At dawn on Beltane, artist Hanna Tuulikki sings the summer in, performing some of her solo vocal works based on the patterns of songbirds, animating the echoes of the greenwood and interacting with the music of the birds.

Hanna Tuulikki is a British-Finnish artist, composer and performer based in Scotland, who specialises in working with voice and movement to tell ‘stories’ about reworlding in times of biospheric crisis. Her practice spans vocal composition, choreography, costume, and visual score drawing, within performance, sound, moving image and installation. With a largely place-responsive process, she considers how bodily relationships and folk histories are encoded within specific places, often drawing on embodied vernacular knowledges, in particular practices of vocal and gestural ‘mimesis’ of the more-than-human, to offer alternative approaches to making kin. Most recently, her work has engaged directly with urgent questions around the psychology of the climate emergency and biodiversity loss, and how to meet and process complex emotions that come with ecological awareness.

Presented by Radical Ecology and Southcombe Barn, Invasion Ecology is a season of contemporary land art coming to Dartmoor from 1 May - 10 August 2024 that questions what we mean by ‘native’ and what it means to belong, reimagining more empathic connections between humans, plants, animals and landscapes.
