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 250 seats) are invited to apply for this programme. We welcome proposals coming from all dance practices and traditions with rigourous and contemporary approaches to performance.
