Open call for dance professionals – Apply for SPARKS now
Dance House Helsinki calls for dance professionals based in Finland to apply for an uplifting development programme. SPARKS enables six new productions which will be seen on stage at Dance House Helsinki in 2022–2023.
The SPARKS programme is a new artistic development project funded by Finnish Culture Foundation and Dance House Helsinki to support artists in Finland who desire to create new large scale works. Acknowledging the present conditions that artists are operating in locally, the project framework responds by providing key resources for dancemakers to support the entire creation process; from research to residency to production. This includes fees for a working group, adequate residency time in a rehearsal studio and theatre, and access to consult leading dramaturgs, producers, and choreographers throughout the process.
