MARIKKI HAKOLA from Finland, for the choreography and dance
AKENO from Japan and MOLISSA FENLEY from USA and for the music
OTNA EAHKET trio with ANTTI HYTTI, JOUNI TAKAM?KI and

TRIAD Project consists of two parts: TRIAD NetDance was a
live Internet netcast between Helsinki, Tokyo and New York
on 5th of June 1998. TRIAD NetDance took place simultaneously
on three stages in three different countries. The dancer,
choreographer Molissa Fenley was dancing in New York, at
Dance Theater Workshop. The butoh dancer, choreographer Akeno
was dancing at the VTV studio in Tokyo. The OtnĚ Eahket played
at the Kiasma theatre. The video signals from New York and
Tokyo were combined at the Kiasma, mixed with the electronic
backgrounds and netcasted to the Internet. The three locations
of this performance were combined to a virtual stage which
could be experienced on the Internet. Marikki Hakola
has made a video TRIAD NetDance Remix, which consists
highlights of the live netcast of TRIAD NetDance.
TRIAD HyperDance is an interactive art work on the net,
containing a dance work as hypervideo and an interactive
choreography. The work can be seen at the url address

and the visual design are built to a hypermedia format. With

space to another, and has a possibility to combine the
