Summer Residency Programme

In 2020, Liisa Pentti +Co started a Summer residency programme in their studio for dance and performance groups and artists working either in Finland or internationally. The aim of the residency is to provide artists and groups a peaceful working space for e.g. research or working towards a future production. At the end of their residency period, the artists have an opportunity to arrange a work-in-progress type of performance or event.
