Tanssiteatteri Eri

"The Battle"

Dance Theatre ERI was founded in 1989 by the well-known Finnish dancer-choreographers Tiina Lindfors, Lassi Sairela and Eeva Soini.

Dance Theatre ERI’s diverse program includes numerous interesting performances, from short-act performances to full evening dance productions. We perform at a range of venues, such as international festivals as well as at Finnish and international cultural events and at private occasions. The theatre presents approximately 130 shows per year. In addition to performances in Finland, ERI has performed in 25 countries. Most of ERI’s dance performances are also broadcasted.
