Bio – Ryan Mason is a choreographer, educator, performer, and performance mentor working on international stages for the past 30 years. He is intrigued by moving bodies, of voice and agency, and how the subconscious informs his practice. A central concern of his work is theatrical communication—how the tenants of theater can relate an essence of the human condition while maintaining its inherent mystery.
Ryan Mason is also a co-founder with Annamari Keskinen of Thar Be Dragons – a platform for theatrical dance research, education, and performance, based in Helsinki. TBD has been commissioned for creations throughout Europe and North America. They offer workshops, performance opportunities, and public outreach on their teaching methods and choreographic vision. Here, both choreographers bring their professional experience and individual artistic vision into collaboration.
