For the first research episode in the new artist-researcher-run space Pengerkatu 7 Työhuone in Helsinki, Vincent Roumagnac chose to address, with a sense of urgency, the viral issue, at a time when we have entered the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in order to, collectively, try to understand more, from various perspectives, experiences, and sensitivities, what this virus is doing to our stage practices. Initially, we thought to organize a seminar in Helsinki, but the general situation in which we are does not allow it any longer. Hence, this proposal. But not as a Plan B. Rather an alternative form and attempt of making « sense » together. All the contributors work in relation to the « stage », through the lens of scenography, dramaturgy, choreography, directing, acting, performing, dancing, reflecting... They were invited to respond to the call with a short videographic object, in which they address the (notion of) virus in relation to their ongoing scenic practice. An online and open access collective publication is launched on Työhuone pages on the Research Catalogue (International database for artistic research) on December 11 2020. A celebrative display and live broadcast on SN will also takes place Pengerkatu 7 Työhuone on December 12 2020.
