Work in Progress: Dance Brothers 

Join for an exclusive work in progress of the first Netflix/YLE commissioned drama series from Finland!

Brothers Roni and Sakari struggle to make a living as professional dancers. They start their own club to finance their dreams, which provides income, housing and training space. However, artistic ambitions and personal relationships soon collide with commercial demands. The loyalty and love the brothers have for each other will be tested by the one thing that always united them - dance.

Max Malka, Head of Scripted at Endemol Shine Finland, will join us on stage for the work in progress and share her insights from the production on the need for social and ecological sustainability and how it contributes to the quality of scripted drama.
