posted in: Artists2020 | 0

As an artist, Sanna Leinonen is positioned in developing new forms of circus and contemporary circus. In her latest works, circus meets at least performance art and site-specific art, and the forms are strongly connected to current discourse on the ecology and ecological crisis.

Sanna Leinonen is a contemporary circus artist, graduated in 2019 at Turku Arts Academy. In her new work Leinonen acts as a director, bringing along a working group including performing artist Satu Hakamäki, circus and dance artist Heidi Miikki, and music and sound artist/technician Marko Hietala. The working group is interested in presence, exploratory work, relationship between human and nature as well as pausing beside simple things in life.
