In their final study year, the students of The Master’s Degree Programme in Dance Performance have the opportunity to build a joint artistic thesis project TADaC (Theatre Academy Dance Collective). One of the baselines for the 2021 TADaC was for students to be able to influence the content and goals of their thesis themselves.
On the verge of graduation, dancers get to perform both in Finland and abroad, presenting a work created together with a professional choreographer and designers. The aim is to facilitate the transition from training to professional practice and gather experiences of performing the work in a variety of spaces and cultural settings. TADaC is the artistic part of the Master’s thesis for the graduating dancers.
The original premiere at Zodiak Stage, Helsinki, on 19.1.2021 and the spring tour had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
