The Company

Alpo Aaltokoski Company is a contemporary dance company founded in 1995 by the choreographer and dance artist Alpo Aaltokoski, whom is one of the key figures in the Finnish dance scene. The company is based in Helsinki, Finland.

AAC has toured and held workshops in nearly 30 countries worldwide: Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America.

Solidarity and joint responsibility are recurring themes in Aaltokoski’s works and are at the very core of the company’s philosophy. Numerous pedagogic projects have been carried out in South and Central America since 1994.

Holistic visual insight is characteristic to Aaltokoski’s artistic work. The choreographer’s aspiration is to understand human beings and their personal relations as well as their relation to the surrounding world, never forgetting the comic side of things.

Alpo Aaltokoski is a guest-artist-in-residence at the Alexander Theatre in 2015–2017.
