Research on Dance House

Salla Sorri

Already in the 1930s a wish for a house entirely dedicated to dance was expressed in Finland, but it took almost ninety years for funding to be secured. In 2017 a three-year research project promising to support the shared vision of creating a house dedicated to all forms of dance was launched. The film follows the construction of the House of Dance through the participatory ethnographic research project “The Good of Dance”.
