Ten years experience from being artistic leader, actor and director of Laboratorytheatre Fennica has created strong profession of working in theatre, producing and teaching it.
I am a specialist of teaching theatre practice (acting teacher). I have done practice based research and developed methodology for theatre practice for twenty years. My work has grown from Grotowski`s, Barba´s and Teatterilaboratorio ECS´s work, where I have studied and thought for several years. That work and training was following ISTA´s principles. My current research title is "Theatre practice as the Manifestation of Performance".
I have lead few EU-projects. Right now I coordinate Culture Kiosk (Kulttuurikiska) project, which is moving theatre and street kitchen. Homepage in Finnish is www.kulttuurikiska.weebly.com.
