Taneli Törmä / LOCATION X

Taneli Törmä – LOCATION X is an award-winning choreographer and performing artist, with international and interdisciplinary experience. As a teacher, performer, fundraiser, idea maker and curator, he focuses on developing the performing arts towards a more diverse, intercultural, multi-perspectial and innovative form. Taneli Törmä’s/LOCATION X’s works have been shown in more than 20 countries. They have been selected twice for the Aerowaves – Dance Across Europe. Alongside his own work, LOCATION X has also initiated the program DANCE ALL YEAR LONG, a pop-up dance platform offered for different cities. The goal of LOCATION X is to create new bridges for contemporary dance and to find new audiences and collaboration partners for it – a platform for curating new perspectives and views about dance. Taneli Törmä’s works are often immersive. He is driven by the interest to create situations and experiences, that will carry a specific feeling and movement towards the public – always moved by the question on who is dancing and how and where we can dance today in our everyday lives?
