Hi, my name is Suvi. To describe this mess would take too many words but let's try. If one is willing to define dance as a concept that includes strict categories then this fits that. I divide my efforts into two: contemporary dance and oriental dance. WHY? Oriental dance is something I started when I was a child. I danced Egyptian folkloric dances and later as an adult I travelled, educated myself and soon begun my career as a full time oriental dance teacher, artist and fanatic. This time period placed Middle Eastern and North-African dance traditions in my heart and they will always stay there. BUT I was asking. I needed to cut loose. My heart craved for things I did not know yet. I needed to go to a black hole. So a two year intense black hole opened in front of me and first time in my life I knew how walking feels like. Outokumpu (performance and movement research) education will stay in my body. PROBLEMS After all this dancing one might feel the exhaustion already. But there is a clearing in the forest. So I went back to the University of Helsinki., Archaeology. I love old things! And new things! All kinds of things. Humans, animals, things, artifacts, not-naming things and anti-things. I am interested in new materialism and speculation as I keep on writing my thesis about choreography (in new materialist terms of course) as an applicable method in archaeology. DEFINITION for me as an artist. ? it seems that whenever something is almost emerging I already gaze somewhere else, like a curious child.
