Gruppen Fyra has performed in many different occasions in Finland and abroad (Japan and Portugal 2004, Iceland, Thailand and Norway 2000). The group started out for two reasons: The members of the group wanted to employ themselves and they also wanted to expand people’s knowledge of dance by performing in places where dance is not normally seen; in the streets, trams, fairs, department stores and in different business occasions just to mention a few. Gruppen Fyra can also make improvisation based performances for different outdoorevents.

Gruppen Fyra is a fresh breeze in the field of Finnish contemporary dance. Their style of making high-level and easily approachable contemporary dance filled with humour has been received with great enthusiasm.
