Johanna Nuutinen +Collaborators is a contemporary dance company founded in 2016 which supports the work of choreographer Johanna Nuutinen and a team of visionary designers and dance artists. We create works for the independent field and commissioned productions for larger institutions in Finland and internationally. Our works deal with the body in the world of sensory perception through bold visual worlds and virtuosic movement, revealing the hidden narratives within us. Courage, integrity, curiosity and imagining the impossible are some of the core values that lead our way.
Kinesteetikot ry, a non-profit association founded in 2015, serves as the background organisation of Johanna Nuutinen + Collaborators. The aim of the association is to advance embodied consciousness in the society, support the development of dance and theatre as art forms, further the collaboration between different art forms and the dialogue between art and science in Finland as well as internationally.
Our operations are funded by Arts Promotion Centre Finland, The City of Helsinki, Ministry of Education and Culture, Kone Foundation and Finnish Cultural Foundation. Our latest production partners have been among others Finnish National Ballet, Tero Saarinen Company, Dance House Helsinki, Zodiak-Centre for New Dance and Skånes Dansteater, Malmö.
