Sounds From The Other City

13 DAYS TIL SFTOC: SoundsTown Instagram takeover

There are only 13 days to go until Sounds, so there’s no better time to get to know our Artistic Directors this year. In the first of 5 takeovers of our Instagram, we’ve handed the keys over top Stina Puotinen – half of the team that created SoundsTown at SFTOC 2018. You can get involved and follow the updates on both feed & story at https://www.instagram.com/sftoc/⁣ – give us a follow, won’t you?

We’re up to an AMBER ALERT on SFTOC tickets, with fewer than 25% left on Skiddle. We’ve got a super strict capacity this year, so once they’re gone, they’re gone: get yours here – https://www.skiddle.com/festivals/sounds-from-the-other-city/

🔊SOUNDSTOWN at The SFTOC Village Green ⁣
Roll up, roll up – SoundsTown is back… in town. That’s right, our Annual Village Fete returns – this time with 100% more AstroTurf. All your favourites will be there, bigger and better than ever with crazy competitions, games, prizes and surprises on the Village green all afternoon. Plus, we’re also bringing back the “Onion Ring of Fire Chili Dog” eating competition – with veggie and vegan options, and possibly pickles. HAWT DAWG.⁣

CREATED BY Stina Puotinen⁣
One half of the Sounds from the Other City art direction team that brought you SoundsTown in 2018, Stina Puotinen will be carrying the hot dog baton on into 2019, with a series of inspired roving performances and a “village green” full of fun and frolics. When she’s not wielding a hot dog, Stina is an artist, educator and occasional curator all the way from New York City whose work explores questions of communication and relationships, the (mis)interpretation of objects, actions of spontaneous collaboration and the creation of social space through sculpture, installation and sometimes performance… So that’s what you do with an MFA in Collaborative Practice!⁣ ⁣
