Natasha Lommi - Tero Saarinen Company

Natasha Lommi


Natasha Lommi began her career at Tamara Rasmussen Opisto dance college in Helsinki. She graduated from Danshögskolan in Stockholm in 2005 and the Theatre Academy in Helsinki in 2007. Lommi has worked with several renowned Finnish choreographers, such as Tommi Kitti and Susanna Leinonen. She is one of the founding members of multidisciplinary art ensemble TARGET Helsinki. Alongside her work as a dancer, she has choreographed for e.g. contemporary circus (Agit Cirk), popular music (Paula Vesala’s concerts), as well as dance films and installations. In addition, she has been teaching dance since 2000 and worked as a repetitor for several dance companies.

Lommi has been a visiting dancer at Tero Saarinen Company since 2011. Lommi has danced in TSC creations such as MESH, Third Practice, Transit  and most recently in Johanna Nuutinen’s Hz, premiering in 2022. In autumn 2020, Lommi’s own choreography Voice, a duet with flautist Jenny Villanen, was the first of two TSC collaborations featured in Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s Together concert series.

``In terms of dance and expressiveness the Company’s three female soloists, Satu Halttunen, Auri Ahola and Natasha Lommi, already made the biggest impression on me in their separate solos, but especially in their powerful group scenes. They have the formal skills, but that does not stop their personalities coming through.”
