The main focus of Nadja Pärssinen´s work has been research of interaction between words, sound and movement into the instant choreography. The source of inspiration of this solo practice has been, among other things, composer Brian Eno´s Drums between the Bells compositions and Tom Waits Nighthawks on the diner album.

Pärssinen is interesting to give to the audience the possibility to became sensitive towards landscapes of sound and movement in a relation of now-moment, where the performer dives into the unknown and unexpected.
