Vishnu Vardhani (Staff Co-Ordinator)


Vishnu Vardhani Rajan states about herself “I am a performance artist of Indian origin based in Helsinki, Finland. My origins lie in Hyderabad, an Islamic city in a Buddhist state in the Hindu country of India. I encompass the city I come from and its characteristics are in me. I, Vishnu, a Yoga practitioner, Actor, Dancer, and a Twerk enthusiast. My current journey is one of integrating aspects from physical movements to intellectual faculties - for example, Twerking with Poetry and Yoga with Croquis - drawing. My ongoing performance work is at the intersection of bringing forth Intense truths about womanhood growing up in Patriarchal society, performances that revolve around sex & sexuality, performances where I work with a captive real-life audience (like in a bus, metro, street or market).”
