Ice Hot Nordic Dance > Open Call for Artistic Programme (Finland)

Ice Hot Nordic Dance Platform is an event presenting both emerging and established names of Nordic contemporary dance and choreography to presenters, programmers and other professionals from all over the world. The platform moves between different Nordic countries, and the next edition will be held in Helsinki, Finland from 9-13 February 2022.

Applications are open both for performances (either onstage or at site-specific locations) and for pitch presentations as part of the ‘More More More’ programme.


  • Ice Hot is a platform for contemporary dance and choreography.

  • You have to be a professional artist or company living in or receiving support from at least one of the Nordic countries.

  • The work you apply with needs to be intended for touring.

  • Only one application per company/artist/working group.

Ice Hot Helsinki will compensate performances based on the Finnish trade union’s collective agreement for theatre workers (counting the performance, 1 rehearsal and side costs). A small compensation will also be paid for the More More More presentation.

For those travelling from outside the Helsinki capital area, Ice Hot Helsinki will also cover up to 4 nights stay, subsistence and travel costs to Helsinki. In the case of selected artists/companies for the More More More programme, these costs will be covered for max. 2 artist/company representatives. Ecological ways of travelling are encouraged.

In addition, all selected artists and companies will be offered tailored coaching services in connection with their participation in the Helsinki 2022 platform.

Deadline: 19 April 2021
