About me

I am the professor and head of degree programme of Theatre Arts at the Communication Sciences Unit. I am also a practising dramaturge and theatre director.

Fields of expertise

My research is focused on dramaturgy, corporality, ethics, and the performer. My artistic work consists of multidisciplinary, experimental performances which combine different physical materials, dramaturgies, natural languages, and forms of expression and which I call material theatre. 

In my work, research, teaching and artistic practice are interrelated. I have taught subjects related to dramaturgy, directing, acting, and artistic research in various institutions and universities, in Finland and abroad, for over twenty-five years.
