Tero Saarinen Company's next premiere, Hz (2022) is a new group piece by choreographer Johanna Nuutinen. In Hz, underwater sound pollution acts as a metaphor for the sensory stimuli of the modern world. The audience will deep dive into sound waves – to a zone where hearing becomes experiencing. The creative team consists of many interesting names, e.g. fashion artist and costume designer Mert Otsamo! Set to premiere at Tanssin talo's Erkko Hall in March 2022, Hz is the first piece commissioned for TSC by another choreographer. It is part of a double bill featuring a loved TSC classic. Ticket sales start in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
[Edited on 21.10.2021] The Open call has ended on 21 Oct at 4pm. All applicants will be notified about the selection by the end of November. // The call for residencies at Tero Saarinen Company’s studio at the Cable Factory is now open! The aim of TSC Residencies is to support the working conditions of freelance artists, the development of the Finnish dance field and to serve as a platform for multi-disciplinary experiments. TSC residencies are open to all artists who work with and in between different performing art forms and have an interest in physical expression. The residencies are aimed at both young creators entering the field, as well as more established artists. The open call covers two working periods for spring 2022: Weeks 52–2 and 16–17.
On 9–10 October Hägglund Viipuri Collective will present a feminist and mainly auto-fictional performance, titled agirlisagirlisagirlisasound, at TSC Studio. The work, examining girl and womanhood through sound and movement, is the result of Hägglund Viipuri Collective’s Sound Residency at TSC studio in July 2021. In their demo, the collective presents their findings and work-in-progress for the first time, simultaneously examining the possible impacts of a live audience. Sign up in advance to secure your place in the audience. Free entry – welcome!
