Description Jenni Kivelä, born 1974 in Helsinki, Finland, graduated as a choreographer 2002 from the Theatre Academy of Helsinki, Department of Dance. She lives and works as a freelancer choreographer in Helsinki.
She has created several works after her graduation with the same artistic group called Kind People. The works have been commissioned by e.g. Helsinki Dance Company. She has worked as house choreographer In Zodiak - Center for New Dance in 2004-2005.
Her works combine movement, text and theatre so that the result is multidimensional dance theatre. Her works have been described as naivistic, kind, humoristic, ironic, perspicacious, conceptual, entertaining, sincere, delicate, layered and audience-friendly. Humanity and recognisability are typical for her works. The use of text gives a sense of familiarity in the works, as well as the use of well-known songs, moody fado or classical music.
