Tiina Lindfors is a founding member of Tanssiteatteri ERI, artistic director and dancer-choreographer. It has been typical of Lindfors' career that composers and orchestras have sought collaboration with her. Together with the composer Mikko Heiniö, Lindfors has already created five significant joint works of contemporary music and choreography. As a choreographer, Lindfors is often opinionated and emphasizes the theatrical potential of dance. In addition to the Nordic countries, Lindfors' dance and choreography have been seen in other parts of Europe, Asia, America and Africa.
