Joel Alalantela is a dance artist and choreographer. Since earning his dance degree at Tampere Conservatoire in 2012, Joel has racked up an impressive résumé ranging from contemporary dance pieces to musicals. Currently employed by MD as a dancer-choreographer, Joel is also the founder and choreographer of the Alalantela Company.
Full Moon Effect is Joel’s debut choreography for MD. It is the culmination of a series of demo pieces which have dealt with the idea of limbo, exploring the concept as a headspace, a timeless state, communality in performing arts and an ingredient of resilience.
