This autumn’s movement croquis brings new challengers to drawing when Circus artist Petri Ekqvist performs acrobatic moves in Kunsthalle Helsinki’s exhibition space. Acrobacy is the performance of extraordinary human feats of balance, motor coordination and agility. Produced by the Finnish Art Association, the focus of the Acrobatic Croquis lies in observing the connection between acrobatics and movement: acrobatic moves and handstand poses challenge the drawer to percept the human body in a new way.

Petri Ekqvist is an art and well-being professional with 20 years of experience as a dancer and circus artist. He has performed widely in Finland and abroad in various productions on land, at sea and in the air. Petri works currently as a dancer, dance teacher and personal trainer as well as realizing well-being services for companies and their personnel.

The Finnish Art Association is an active events’ organizer. The highly popular croquis nights are suitable for all ages interested in drawing. No prior knowledge is needed. You don’t have to register in advance, you can just show up. Please bring your own drawing materials.
