As a dancer and a performer I make improvisation and contact improvisation and I am really interested in body politics, poetry of every body and kinesthetic empathy.
Recently my work has evolved to the direction of interactive and participatory performance as well as instant composition.
Tyhjän sykli VI was an improvised site-specific performance in the summer 2016 as a part of series of work of Katariina Vähäkallio and Raisa Vennamo called Tyhjän sykli.
In the series of performances with Art Sport Quartet (Iiris Raipala, Nadja Pärssinen, Kaisa Kukkonen and Iina Taijonlahti) My body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park and Art Sport Quartet goes Deeper we are finding different ways to combine a performance and a contact improvisation jam.
With Iiris Raipala in the performance Inside-Out we went forward with bringing the audience inside the performance and added stage lights, dj and performative elements.
In Gesa Piper’s graduation work Through you for Theatre Academy the group of dancers took impulses from one audience member.
Whatever to love was a performance based on active listening and it happened in a tent. My group Kaisa +1 listened to one person at the time based on their wish to translate a message into love. We performed this piece at the Playdate club in December 2015.
På Samma Bänk is a performance with poetry and improvisation from Aurora Westfelt and Kaisa Kukkonen.
