Iiris Laakso, ukulele (2017)

Iiris Laakso, ukulele is a solo piece named after talent show descriptions of its contestants. The solo examines nervousness and stage fright as highly relatable psychosomatic phenomena.

How, as a performer, to self-ignite the state of stage fright, can nervousness be manipulated? How does a nervous-appearing performer come accross to the audience?

The solo was a part of the first year of studies in the BA in Dance Programme at Theater Academy.
