Besides acting, I have written, adapted and translated material for the stage. You can read more about my translation work on the Tranlations page.
The Sauna Performance (2019) is literally a performance that takes place in a sauna. This performance was a joint literary and directorial effort by the five members of the Löylylyylit ("sauna ladies") collective. I myself wrote two monologues and provided insight on the dramaturgic composition of the show. The other four members of Löylylyylit besides myself are Masters of Arts Roosa Söderholm, Anni Pesonen, Emma Castrén and Tuuli Kainulainen.
The Unfortunate Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (2019) was my artistic thesis for the Theatre Academy. I adapted Robert Louis Stevenson's novella The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde into an intimate chamber play for two actors. I was responsible for the dramaturgy and direction of the play – although some directorial effort was also provided by my co-star. I also designed the staging and lighting for the show together with my team members Anna-Sofia Tuominen (actor) and Anna Haaraoja (sound designer).

I'm a long-time volunteer in the Desucon events centered around Japanese comic books and animated series. When we celebrated Desucon's tenth year of existence in 2018, I put together a musical performance telling the - not entirely historically accurate - story of the event's genesis.
