I studied in the Theatre Academy of Helsinki in between 1998–2003 (MA in Choreography 2003) and have worked as a professional choreographer since 2003. In my studies I embodied the idea of choreography as a writing practice, which meant that I understood “choreographer” to mean a person who makes dance-pieces through mastering movement in the materiality of the trained and abled human body, following in the lineage of western dance-history. The choreographic practice took place in a production mode in which art was realized through a certain economical production mode and with the aim to construct a rehearsed dance-piece to be toured on various stages in a repetitive structural, temporal and compositional frame. This practice collapsed after working a few years professionally. Current research-project articulates the transformations that followed this collapse, some of which are still in process.
