Pipsa Lonka

Pipsa Lonka is a playwright. She graduated as a Master of Arts from the Theater Academy in 2007. Her works are built around strong feelings and they often think of mortality, responsibility and inability and the relationship between language and concrete world. Her plays and radio drama have been translated to eight languages and they have been awarded both in Finland and abroad.

“Lately, I have wondered through writing: can a play built with language and later the reality on the stage reach the non-human reality?”
