ICE HOT Nordic Dance

ICE HOT Nordic Dance is a brand and a collaboration network that promotes Nordic contemporary dance abroad. ICE HOT Nordic Dance Platforms present the diversity of Nordic contemporary dance to hundreds of dance presenters from around the world.

ICE HOT Nordic Dance Platforms are organized every other year. The programme consists of live performances, presentation events of dance artists and their works, seminars and networking events. Hundreds of presenters, festival organizers, agents and cultural actors from all over the world come to see selected works of Nordic contemporary dance.

The performance programmes have been built based on open calls and the selections have been made by a changing international jury until 2014, and by a changing Nordic jury from 2016 onwards.

Previous ICE HOT Platforms have been organized in Reykjavik (2018), Copenhagen (2016), Oslo (2014), Helsinki (2012) and Stockholm (2010).

ICE HOT Nordic Dance is a collaboration network that promotes the visibility of Nordic dance abroad. Besides organizing the Platforms, it has also organized residency exchanges to North America and Europe, exported collaboration know-how to Asia and explored different opportunities for collaboration around the world.

Dance Info Finland is one of five Nordic partners in the ICE HOT network and was responsible for organizing the Helsinki Platform in 2012.

The activities of the ICE HOT network have been funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers until 2018 and the Platforms have received both Nordic and national funding.
