Wilma Seppälä is a dance artist based between Finland and Sweden. In 2021 she graduated from the dance performance programme in Stockholm University of the Arts. Wilma is working widely within dance, performance, choreography and dance teaching.

  In her artistic work Wilma works with movement and somatics around themes like emotions, pleasure and drama. She loves to dive into details both as a dancer and as a choreographer and find big worlds in small things. For her dance offers a possibility for focus, resting and being active simultaneously. Currently Wilma is interested in personal and collective unconscious, being around things she doesn’t understand and the co-existence of silence and high frequency in movement.

  As a dancer Wilma has worked with Sanna Söderholm, Katrín Gunnarsdóttir, Amanda Piña, Wilhelmina Ojanen and Hooman Sharifi amongst many others. Between 2018 and 2022 she collaborated with juggler Onni Toivonen and musician-sound designer Konsta Leinonen in Amalgam which is a performance about the collision of dance, juggling and sound.
