Call for SPARKS Pannuhalli is now open!

The SPARKS project for the Pannuhalli stage aims to support a new generation of dancemakers in Finland.

Finnish dance artists or artists based in Finland who have a maximum of up to 6 years of presenting full length choreographic work publically and are up to 40 years, who are interested in creating a full length work for the Pannuhalli (venue seats up to 230 seats) are invited to apply for the Pannuhalli stage SPARKS project.

We welcome proposals coming from all dance practices and traditions with rigourous and contemporary approaches to performance.

From the open call, three proposals will be selected for production. Selected proposals will receive 1.5 weeks in the Pannuhalli Stage leading up to the premiere of the production after the house opens. Salaries and a production budget will be provided. The scheduled premieres will take place between 2022 and 2023.
