Description Liisa Pentti + CO is a Helsinki-based dance group which was founded in 2000. The group’s artistic director is the dancer-choreographer Liisa Pentti. + CO’s artistic aim is to create dance productions that combine emotion with the body’s kinesthetic knowledge to produce movement. The starting point of their works is movement; elements of both theatre and visual and vocal expression support the movement’s emotions.

For the dancer-choreographer Liisa Pentti, the verbal and virtual reality of texts and the art of storytelling have always served as travel guides to a human being’s innermost corners. Many of her choreographies, which currently total over 20 works, have been strongly inspired by literature. Pentti also teaches contact improvisation and a number of other techniques to students of drama, among others.
