Profile Information

Performance Discipline
director, researcher
Tuija Kokkonen is a director, writer and researcher based in Helsinki, Finland. Since 1996 she has worked on a series of site-specific ‘memo performances’, as the director and the artistic director of Maus&Orlovski, an ever-changing performance collective of artists from various fields. The memos are explorations on relationships between performance, nature and time. They chart terrains between genres of art, between species; terrains where aesthetics, ethics and politics are inseparable. Since 1999 the memos have been performed in the program of Kiasma Theatre/ Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki.
Her current (since 2006) doctoral research project at the Theatre Academy Helsinki is titled "The Potential Nature of Performance. The Relationship to the Non-Human in the Performance Event from the Perspective of Duration and Potentiality”. The work incorporates a new series of performances called Memos of Time — performances with and for non-humans.
