Arranged for the first time in 2018, performing arts showcase Performing HEL will take place on 29th of August – 1st of September 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. Performing HEL happens at the same time with Helsinki Festival – the largest arts festival in Finland.
With performances, demos and production pitches, the event will showcase the finest work from Finland right now. Performing HEL invites both Finnish and international presenters, programmers, directors and other performing arts professionals to discover a full range of Finnish performing arts, including circus, dance and theatre, also delivered in exciting yet difficult-to-define combinations.
The program of the showcase will be published on this website by the end of April 2019.
The official program of Performing HEL will start on Thursday 29.8. afternoon and end on Sunday 1.9. around 3pm. We suggest that you join us on Thursday and stay until Sunday to get the full experience! Or why not to stay in Helsinki for a little bit longer? Performing HEL is happening at the same time with Helsinki Festival so the city is full of exciting art and culture experiences.
In 2019 the showcase is organised by CircusInfo Finland and Dance Info Finland in cooperation with Helsinki Festival, the Finnish National Theatre, Svenska Teatern (the main Swedish-language theatre in Helsinki), Espoo City Theatre and Theatre Info Finland TINFO.
