Lähellä (Close) – Work for Finnish National Ballet

“My intention was to create intimate duets filled with warmth and happiness, combined with passion and energy, while avoiding being too sentimental.

Kara ja Oke (Kara and Oke)

Kara and Oke is a contemporary dance performance about burning passion and eager karaoke fans. It’s a cocktail of hidden lust across the room, not quite hitting the right notes and a cloud of quietly whispered secrets. Kara and Oke is funny and touching. The piece wins sympathy votes for its vulnerability, but it also stands admirably strong through tears and laughter.

Tell Me Something

A humorous solo of an ordinary woman and her extraordinary stories where the surprises will
keep you in a tight hold till the end. Without asking she grabs you with her for a voyage
skipping from genuine sincerity via bubbly exhilaration to slight lunacy. Beautifully honest
movement links in organically with the soft voice, until it all starts cracking up.

Mirjami and Mikael is a duet characterised by fast, physical contact and partnering work: lifts,
aggressive touch and sensual skin slide into hilariously idiosyncratic un-trendiness.
