Dancer (Dance Theatre Minimi)
In addition to Tero Saarinen Company, Makkonen has been a guest dancer at e.g. the Finnish National Ballet, Helsinki City Theatre, Kinetic Orchestra and Pori Dance Company. He has performed in the works of various Finnish choreographers and companies. Makkonen’s own choreographies have been seen in multiple productions at Kuopio City Thetre, Dance Theatre Minimi and Zodiak – Centre for New Dance. The bodily focus of dancing and a responsible relationship with the world are core values in Makkonen’s work. See Mikko Makkonen’s dance reel in Vimeo!
