Hooray! We are celebrating our 10-year anniversary in 2023! The celebrations will be themed around the future of arts.

Studio 1

Studio 1 is one of the Theatre Academy’s performance halls, and it is equipped especially for the student performances.

The studio mostly plays host to Uniarts Helsinki’s Theatre Academy’s student productions.

The hall is equipped for high-quality lighting and audio solutions, as well as video projections. It is located on the same level as the workshops, which makes set building and disassembling easier. The lighting, audio and set equipment can be set up in various ways with catwalks, battens, trusses and chain hoists. The equipment can be attached to the walls with C-rails (one metre apart).

The walls have rails, and the hall can be surrounded with black, opaque Molton fabric. In all facilities with ceiling battens, the maximum burden is 40 kg/m2, which is enough for projectors and speakers.

The seating and stage structures can be adjusted (Nivoflex and Stageright), and the audience chairs can be fixed. The studios have storage rooms for storing light sets and for use as a back office.

The hall can hold a maximum of 80 people (148m²).

If there are vacancies, the Theatre Hall can be hired to outsiders for events that are clearly connected to the university. If you are interested in hiring the facilities, please contact Facilities Director – Matti Rautio.
