I perform poetry in English & Finnish, and do a performance of poetic tarot reading from cards specially designed for Poetry Fortunes. My poems are adventurous, the misbehave – and as a performance artist, I am full of light and curiousity.

Poetry Performances

I have performed in various festivals and poetry events, qualified twice to Finnish Nationals of Poetry Slam and participated in Galway heat of Irish Nationals 2019.

I perform both in English & in Finnish, and each performance is unique and tailored for the occasion.

Past gigs include Books@One in Louisburgh, Mayo; Norpas Festival in Kimitö, Finland with Ohrwurm; Muusajuhlat (Literary art festival) in Oulu; Poetry Jam in Helsinki; Runokuu Poetry Festival in Helsinki and so on.

Audience feedback:

“I wanted to shout I LOVE YOU in the middle of your performance but I didn’t dare to, so I came to tell it to you now instead.” – 2018

Poetry Fortunes

Have your Poetry Fortune read and receive beautiful words of inner truth for times of great change and possibility. Create a space within yourself and resist the pull of the rushed and disconnected modern world.

.A beautiful and evocative performance based on tarot reading made through a special deck of cards containing poetry. The audiences are invited to engage with their inner experience of time and space via poems created out of past, future, and present – each poem received is a unique combination of words, imagination and interaction in a passing moment.

Written and performed by performance poet & playwright Jenni Nikinmaa. Via Zoom or in shared space.

Customer feedback:

“I really enjoyed the performance, beautiful and sensitive”

“I loved that the experience was different to any other experience I have had, so I felt it was very unique and a special way to spend my time.”

“I find tarot readings difficult to understand sometimes, so the poems were a good gateway to understanding. They were also a beautiful artistic expression, and an experience based on my own reading so it was special.”

“loved them, beautiful and evocative”
