Dance Theatre MD

27 years of dance, dance, dance!

Since 1997, the city’s one and only professional dance theatre represents the cutting edge of contemporary dance. The Hällä Stage is home to a continuous spectrum of dance pieces that light up, move and inspire audiences of all ages from generation to generation while reflecting our core values – collaboration, co-creation and inclusiveness.

MD keeps on providing contemporary dance for all ages, grounded in movement, blooming with emotion –putting smiles on people’s faces and bringing tears to their eyes.

2024 marks a celebration of artist & audience interaction at MD, as we provide you with more chances to learn about the creations and creators of contemporary dance. Stay tuned for upcoming meetups, behind-the-scenes tours, audience discussions, courses, workshops and much more.

During our first quarter century we have provided our audiences with a total of 107 productions including 84 originals, 23 collaborations with theatre and opera companies and other artists, 18 family-friendly shows and two performances for young adults.

In addition, MD provides tailored workshops and special bookings for groups, such as body maintenance dance courses for workplaces, pre-show tune-ups and intro discussions, technical tours of Hällä for students, and much more. Don’t hesitate to ask!

MD productions can be tailored to fit various venues and occasions from grand stages to kindergartens, face-to-face encounters, corporate events and street shows. You can also book a select slice from a show for your event, be it a seminar, a private party or a festival. You name it, we bring it!

Enjoy our diverse lineup of shows, and expand your knowledge with behind-the-scenes tours, audience discussions, workshops and meet-and-greets. We at MD are committed to keeping The Hällä Stage a safe space for everybody, and we wish that our audiences do the same.
