The mission of Kekäläinen & Company is to promote dance as an intellectual art form with strong potential in political and poetic communication. The creator of K&C is choreographer–dancer Sanna Kekäläinen. Her work expands the experience of a dance performance by combining philosophy, gender studies, text and conceptual thinking from the feminist angle with highly original movement language.

The international dialogue is essential to K&C. Since its birth in Helsinki in 1996 the company has toured extensively and it has been recognised as courageous, thought provoking and outstanding in the homeland as well as around the world.
