Pragma Helsinki

Pragma Helsinki was created based on the need to develop sustainable working conditions in collaboration with artists. We help our clients to achieve their professional dreams by supporting them through every step of the journey, from recognizing needs to filing reports. We have an understanding of how the artist can attain his or her goals and ideals without compromising the artistic content. With us, the artist will find a competent and pragmatic partner who can take care of any assignment, from production, administration and/or sales. 

It was clear from the very start of Pragma Helsinki that we as producers and managers need to determine our common values and let them guide us in our decision-making. While recognizing our values, the words that frequently came up were: partnership, professionalism, open-mindedness, compassion and reliability. These values are the foundation of Pragma and we aim to convey them in everything we do. Now and in the future.

Pragma Helsinki is located in Helsinki, Finland.

Pragma Helsinki has been born from a two-year development project ignited by Dance Info Finland and CircusInfo Finland. The project is supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland.

Thoughts of the artists

I enjoy working with Pragma. They’re a very swell, efficient and dynamic team. Pragma offers flexible and comprehensive long-term services at a fair price.

Olli Vuorinen, Cie Nuua

The women at Pragma form an iron ring of accomplished, fearless and competent managers, to whom I feel comfortable bringing any professional question I may have. In my experience, they feel passionately for dance art and put their hearts into their work. I trust them completely.
