Johanna Nuutinen part of the SPARKS shortlist

Johanna Nuutinen has been selected for the SPARKS project.

SPARKS is a new artistic development project funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation and Dance House Helsinki. The project’s aim is to support Finnish dance artists willing to create new productions for large stages. The funding will cover the team’s fees, residency periods in the rehearsal studio and theatre, and the possibility to consult with dramaturgs, producers and choreographers throughout the process.

Of the eight shortlisted candidates, five will be selected for a three-week residency period and, of them, three performances will be chosen to produce premieres at the Erkko stage in 2022–2023.
