"The 2021 Tampere Theatre Festival is especially dedicated to Finnish theatre. Represented by an outstanding selection of productions ranging from rebellious and hard-knuckled to ethereal and radiant, this is not theatre staggering to its feet after being almost knocked out.
This year’s festival is a dazzling display of the creators’ unflinching imagination, inventiveness and comedic prowess.

Our wish is that artists and audiences get a chance to connect through these exquisite, fearless and sensuous works – and we can all celebrate a phenomenal comeback of live theatre."
