AUDIENCE ENGAGEMENT & PRODUCTION WORK
(& PROJECT COORDINATION)
I've been working a lot with audience engagement and project coordinating in contemporary dance & community theatre & producing large-scale audience engagement & contemporary dance productions since 2012.
The most significant employers I have had the joy to work for are Dance House Helsinki, The Swedish National Theatre in Helsinki, Zodiak - Center for New Dance, Liikekieli.com & Lenkkiteatteri.
In 2016 I brought a performance by a dialogical audience engagement project created by my colleague Ma Deva Bhadra (Maria Hyökyvaara) to the Swedish National Theatre in Helsinki. You can see the performance here:
and the post-performance talk led by me here:

In my work at Dance House Helsinki (DHH) 2016-2018 I shaped the audience development & engagement strategy for the coming house. I also created, planned and led many magnificent innovative projects for different audience groups, both for small groups and for thousands of people. All this for dance!
Here you can see short videos of them.
