More about the performance during spring 2021.


Master’s students in the art of dance at the University of the Arts Helsinki’s Theater Academy have the opportunity to build a joint artistic thesis project called TADaC (Theater Academy Dance Collective) in their final year of study.

TADaC has existed since 2007. It has traditionally involved the production of a stage work in collaboration with a professional choreographer and designers. Since its performance, the work has toured domestically and internationally.

Emmi Venna was selected as the choreographer of TADaC after a short but rewarding period of joint work. The students were spoken by Emmi Venna’s artistic proposals as well as the dialogical and transparent way of working. When choosing the TADaC choreography, the discussion also highlighted the students’ desire to work with the local and the author of the master’s program in dance. In addition, Emmi played good music.

The goal of the TADaC project is to enable a deep artistic process, providing sufficient time to produce the work. The goal of the next tour of the work is to provide an opportunity to experience a longer life cycle of performing and to gather experiences of performing the work in different venues and cultural environments. The tour also includes the opportunity to conduct small-scale local public workshops. TADaC is the artistic thesis of the participating dancers.
