Johanna  Henritius

I'am a Finnish dancer - researcher and PhD candidate at University Côte d'Azur. I graduated as Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts from the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis. Before this, I studied at the Ballet School of the Finnish National Opera, the Royal Swedish Ballet School and in Salzburg  Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD). As an artist, I have danced in Finland, Sweden, Austria and Germany and France. I'm currently working with Celaine Company and my latest work experience includes contemporary dance pieces Inline Analysis (2017), Ein Tag Zu Zweit (2017) and the dance film AM (2018). 

A central theme of my doctoral research is to tackle the conceptual and methodological problems concerning the meeting point of dance and spirituality. As a member of the research laboratory CTEL, I pursue my doctorate under the direction of Marina Nordera and Federica Fratagnoli. In my research blog, I share projects, seminars, articles and thoughts related to my field of study # practice based research, choreographic processes, somatic education, documentation, energy healing techniques, spirituality
