Annikki Wahlöö is an actress and performative artist. Her background is within theatre, a field she started to work 25 years ago. The last 15 years she has been working more and more with experimental projects and within a more multidisciplinary field, with dancers, choreographers, musicians and visual artists.. She has been doing site specific, human specific, immersive, performative work. She has been in projects in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Italy and in the USA. In small and large scale productions from one to one to large scale.
Studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York, Malmö Theatre Academy and at UniArts in Stockholm. She has recently studied with the SITI company in Saratoga Springs New York. She consider herself as an artist with a background in physical and political theatre. She is also curious and always searching for new themes and expressions to explore.
A big inspiration is literature, visual art, science and politics. A theme that has been of great interest in her own work is among others inspired by Hanna Arendts book the human condition and humanity´s lack of tolerance and empathy.
Currently she is in a master program in performing arts at the Gothenburg University in Sweden.
