Susanna Leinonen Company’s artists are united by a desire to give the audience the experience of total art works that have Leinonen’s visionary choreography at their core. Uncompromisingly made works are comprised of specially-composed music, movement language that is characteristic of the group, costume design that supports the narrative, and lighting that unites the different aspects as a whole.
Susanna Leinonen Company was formed in 2001. It qualified to receive state support in 2008, and two years later, in 2010, it was chosen to be included in a Ministry of Education cultural export programme. Since 2010 Company is also funded by the City of Helsinki.
During the years that it has been running, Susanna Leinonen Company has produced a new work every year. Separate works comprise a series of such a consistently high standard that the company is deservedly at the forefront of contemporary dance. A feeling of ease is born of the polished works and ambitious choreographies, and the unprecedented sound world gives the audience the chance to experience the works in an unrestrained way.
