Dance House Helsinki Interior
The architecture and interior of Dance House is designed to leave room for dance performances, it is only complete when dancers and audience arrive. As the visitors enter the spaces, they feel like walking onto the stage, becoming part of the performance. The whole building can be experienced as a stage. The moment of performance has arrived.
The Dance House is built on experiences and illusions. It invites you to enter the world of dance and art without any preconceived ideas.
In the interiors, robust surfaces of raw steel and concrete meet theatre lighting systems, technical installations, and striking colors. Lights and shadows play with reflective surfaces. Together, these aim to create a "burlesque" quality reminiscent of the films by Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki.
