The BIOTOOPIA’23 – Art, Science and Biosphere Hybrid Conference at Tallinn Botanic Garden/Online & Loopealse Wasteland (May 11-13) focuses on UNDERGROUND NETWORKS.

Whereas the first two days will be filled with presentations and discussions, the Biotoopia art programme will take place on Saturday, May 13. Curated and organized by experimental musician Vaim Sarv, and artist and semiotician Anette Pärn.

The art program invites the audience on a guided journey through the Loopealse Wasteland. This happening will be an interactive whole combining site-specific sound and performance art with pagan folk singing.

On this wasteland on the coast of Tallinn, multiple perspectives will meet, collide, and melt into one another. Held by the force of ritual and oral tradition, we will resist the loneliness of individualism and human exceptionalism. Every act here will intertwine into a collective, relational network.

Highlights of the art program include:

Young Boy Dancing Group – performance

Vaim Sarv – ritual

A quartet of folk singers composed of Janika Oras, Leanne Barbo, Marion Selgall, and Minni Oras – regilaul (traditional Estonian form of singing and story telling)

Anette Pärn, Hildegard Reimann, Inge Ivaste – performative guides

Everyone who purchases a ticket will receive the precise location of the art program via email two weeks in advance. This event will happen in any possible weather conditions. Please dress accordingly.The organisers have a right to make changes to the programme.
