Hi I'm Johanna!
A contemporary dancer originally from Finland. Teacher, Master of Arts and PhD candidate, I'm interested in the meeting point of dance and spirituality/creation and somatic practices, in my artistic work and research. I studied at the Finnish National Opera's Ballet school, The Royal Swedish Ballet School and S.E.A.D. For the past ten years I have been working in Sweden, Finland, Austria, Germany and France. Since 2014, I have been in close collaboration with german choregrapher Margarita Nagel (cie M/N) as assistant chor.
The concept "narrative body" was created to englobe the artistic research I have been practicing for the last nine years in contemporary dance, energetic healing techniques and body therapies - an artist's statement for changing the way we dance and interact with moving realities and energies.
work in progress
