Turunen has attracted a lot of international attention for her work, characteristically rich in detail and often incorporating innovative constructions that blur the line between costume and set design.
She has collaborated with Tero Saarinen since 2000. Turunen has designed costumes for many of TSC’s key productions, such as HUNT (2002) and Borrowed Light (2004), and, most recently Kullervo (TSC with the Finnish National Opera and Ballet, 2015) and Zimmermann Trio (TSC with the LA Phil 2018).
She has also worked with Jorma Uotinen, Susanna Leinonen, Kenneth Kvarnström and Jø Strömgren, and designed costumes for Nederlands Dans Theater, the Lyon Opéra Ballet, the Royal Danish Ballet, Grand Théâtre de Genève, as well as the Operas of Malmö and Gothenburg. In 2007 she was in charge of costume design for The Eurovision Song Contest. At her design studio Ateljee Hurma, she also does costumes for individual artists as well as evening dresses. www.hurma.fi
