Since 2019, most of Performing HEL’s program has been selected from artists’ proposals received through an open call. Some of the program’s performances come from the Helsinki Festival’s performing arts program and Performing HEL partners.

As a biennial event, Performing HEL showcase some of the most interesting elements of Finnish* performing arts (theatre, dance and circus) that are suitable for international audiences and touring to Finnish and international festival and theatre program presenters. In previous years, the program has consisted of pitches, demos, and performances.

Interested in hearing when the next Performing HEL and its open call will take place? We recommend following the communication channels of Dance Info Finland, Circus Info Finland and Theatre Info Finland TINFO to hear the latest news.

*) Artists and companies who live, work and/or get funding from Finland are eligible to apply.
