kneading to the 3rd millennia is a working process on acts and atmospheres that motivate us in this moment in time. It is also a search for what we are able to do and available for. What do we as humans need, and what does the third millennia need from us?

The joint working process of Lau Lukkarila and artists Charlie Laban Trier, tiran, Ju Aichinger and Manuel Riegler starts with the connection between the English words ‘needing’ and ‘kneading’. ‘Kneading’ is what kittens do to pump milk from their nursing cat's breast. Later in life, most cats maintain this pattern of behaviour, maybe to mark their emotional territory. The performance kneading to the 3rd millennia is made up of found bits and pieces, band practice, grunge, neediness, out-of-order dances, and density of neural firing. It takes a long time to get to know someone, and even then, they keep on changing.

Lau Lukkarila is a choreographer and performer currently based in Vienna. Lau studied applied theatre, acting, and performance at the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki and the Royal School of Performing Arts in Madrid. In 2018, they received both the Austrian Federal Chancellor’s Office’s START scholarship and the danceWEB scholarship associated with the ImPulsTanz festival. Recent works include Trouble (2019, Tanzquartier Wien) and the online EPs Super Like (2019) and HUFKLANG (2020), published under the pseudonym LAUX (Schoßhund). Her most recent piece NYXXX was co-produced by imagetanz/brut Wien in 2020 and invited to the 2021 ImPulsTanz festival.
