BIOGRAPHY

I am a professional contemporary dance artist based in Helsinki, Finland. I have graduated as a Master of Arts in Dance from the Theatre Academy Helsinki in 2016. Previously, I have done studies in Dance and Movement Therapy and received vocational qualification in dance from the Finnish National Opera Ballet School.

 

Since 2010 I have worked in different artistic collaborations and performed in many Finnish and international dance festivals and venues. I have worked with choreographers such as Liisa Risu, Mirva Mäkinen, Liisa Pentti, Kosei Sakamoto, Soili Huhtakallio and Johanna Nuutinen and danced in several works of Petri Kekoni Company. I have also performed in site-specific works (e.g. with Willi Dorner), dance films, Turku City Theatre, Savonlinna Opera Festival etc. Year 2017 I choreographed and performed in a virtual reality dance short film Wombsong (dir. Hanna Västinsalo) that has toured in several festivals in Europe and USA in 2018-2019.

In addition to performance projects I teach contemporary dance and practice shiatsu massage.
