This is the artistic website of Sebastian López-Lehto, born in 1988 Jyväskylä, Finland. He has studied political science in the University of Jyväskylä, contemporary/new dance in North Carelian College Outokumpu and holds a BA in dance and an MA in choreography from the Arts University Helsinki.
He gratuated from the choreography program in 2018 with a thesis written and artistic work done around the concept of oceanic feeling in relation to somatic dance practise. The oceanic feeling is understood as a momentary experience of self-boundary dissolution and a more general existential orientation characterized as underlying feeling of connectedness, of openness of possibilities and of being held. The topic of bodily and choreographic practises as constituting self-world relationship is for him still of great interest.
Currently he´s working instensively with ostheopath-mover-musician-chemist-dramaturg Emmi Kaasalainen with tools for social moves in a literal sense.
