Since 2009, she has been working as performer independently and in collaborations with other artists in Finland and internationally. She has been making choreographies for a number of productions, including dance films, and also writting scripts for theater. In her artistic work she is interested in composing dances and texts instantly in close relation with live music and objects. Her practice is to go beyond the surface of narrative meanings towards complexity and multiplicity of poetic metaphors.
