In spring 2023 Anette Toiviainen and Iiris Puustinen's residencies started a new collaboration between TSC and Amos Rex. The goal of the collaboration is to support new generations in the performing arts field. Toiviainen's solo Duet got its start as a reflection on loneliness and longing for another person’s touch. Puustinen's creation 3,2,1 (The Walk) aims to bring fashion world aesthetics into the art exhibition. Both choreographies were performed in Amos Rex Generation 2023 Performance programme. | In summer's Sound Residency, musician-composers Maija Kauhanen and Hugh Sheehan will conduct experiments in both the audience’s, and performers’ position, movement and gesture. Utilising TSC Studio’s immersive audio system, they will explore the characteristics of spatial audio as thematic and motivic origin. Kauhanen and Sheehan form an artistic duo that uses the Finnish traditional instrument kantele together with electronics, home-made instruments, and human-computer interfaces. Their work explores the internal characteristics of sound, and experimental improvisation and performance processes.
Tero Saarinen's creations Third Practice and Transit are being broadcasted globally in May and June 2023. Third Practice is returning on Mezzo TV's programme during 23 May – 16 June. The multi-camera recording of TSC's and Helsinki Baroque Orchestra's creation was shot at the Finnish National Opera in March 2021 by film director Thomas Freundlich. On Sunday 21 May, Japan's public media organization NHK will broadcast Transit, shot at Merikaapelihalli in Helsinki during the creation's Finnish premiere season.
