Kati Rapia: Everybody Dance Now! (detail)

2019

With Everybody Dance Now!, a random by-walker can try and learn some new steps in his or her life. The giant comic strip of different by-passers is simultaneously a dance tutorial for six different dance styles from different cultures – present in multicultural Espoo – like jenkka, real dance, dhaanti, khaleegy, ripaska and modern dance. So Everybody Dance Now! is also rules or notes for an open dance moment, which is happening whole summer whenever somebody feels like trying one (or all) of the moves on the window screen.
