Solla’s collaboration with TSC started on Transit in 2021, continuing in the cast of Johanna Nuutinen’s Hz.
”I was taken aback by the dedication of Saida Solla, who could still be described as young.”
Dansportalen, 7 December 2021 (Finland) / TRANSIT
”In terms of dance, Hz was top-notch. The dancers Elina Häyrynen, Natasha Lommi, Saida Solla, Eero Vesterinen and Riccardo Zandonà were like finely-tuned instruments, with every part of their body reacting sensitively to the surrounding sounds.”
