The host of the Kokko1721 residency

Jukka Ristolainen is the Host and the adiministrator of the residency.

Jukka graduated in 2002 from the Theatre Academy Helsinki, Department of Dance. Since then he has worked as an independent dance artist. The artistic work of Jukka Ristolainen is a process that is a continuum from the everyday life to a contemporary dance work. His work is emphasised by the site-spesific thinking and he often deals with the concept of time in his works. Taking dance-art to new venues and to new audiences is important for him.
