Choreography as a potentiliaty, carrier of potential to eventually actualise. Or not actualise at all. 


From the perspective of a ghostly presence of former choreorgapher and an artist-researcher dwelling in the controversies of the artistic research field, I wellcome unreadability,  the opaque,  latency, vaguessness and indeterminacy activated in all media and materialities.



There are various practices I engage in (e.g. practice 1: living an immigrant live in Finland, kind of middle-class, white, cis-woman, parenting two children; practice 2: reading into ALL directions; practice 3: writing; practice 4: teaching; practice 5: prefering not to).
