Tero Saarinen Company
The primary aim of Tero Saarinen Company, founded by dancer-choreographer Tero Saarinen in 1996, is to promote a humane worldview and basic human values through the language of dance, while also increasing people’s understanding of their own physicality and its significance for a good life. Its operating principles – Awake, Aware, Alert, Alive – apply not only to artistic work, but all of the organisation’s activities. Tero Saarinen Company is the resident company of the Alexander Theatre. The group has its rehearsal studios, offices and storage facilities in the building, located in the heart of Helsinki. The company also regularly performs its small and middle-scale works on the historic theatre’s stage.
