Virpi Pahkinen

Swedish choreographer and dancer Virpi Pahkinen’s works are full of secrets; she can be a warrior of the spirit, a spectral gardener or a shaman in metamorphosis. She offers dance as an incantation and creates a meditative atmosphere with her original choreography. She is well known for her stunningly chiselled shapes and almost otherworldy moves. Virpi Pahkinen has toured over 45 countries and is multiply praised for her work. She has awarded several prizes in a.o the Cullberg Prize, Carina Ari Gold Medal, Litteris et Artibus and 1st Choreography prize in Stuttgart. She has created commissioned work for companies as Skånes Dansteater and Finnish National Opera Ballet and also appeared in dance films for wide screen and TV. In the spring 2013, she released her literary debut Ormbäraren (Serpent Holder).
