Vanessa Virta is a dancer, choreographer and rapper based in Helsinki Finland. Her work often includes dark humor, strong feelings, headbanging, sweat and sometimes even tears or other fluids.
Hi! I will share my favourite thoughts and movements with you next week. After-death for me means right now alive, so the focus will be in pleasure in everything we do. I like some ballet moves, kicking legs, going around and articulating feet. Also I like touching and moving with sensations of touch. So these things are offered to you with finnish dark humor and enthusiasm. It will probably be a little sweaty and there will be possibility to focus on your own body rather than my exciting ideas, which I do not have, but I have heard many great things that I can share with you!
