Hair

Summer 1969. The hippie movement hits its peak at Woodstock, and the Popteatteri company hits their hometown stage at Tampere Theatre Festival with their version of Hair.

Summer 2019. Hair is the first thing to hit the stage at Tampere Theatre Festival. How on earth will the original musical’s unholy union of reckless freedom, uninhibited love and drugs fit in with today’s perceptions of reality? Will love and shared dreams have any place in a society mostly preoccupied with performance and success?

In January, this massive production by three higher education institutes based in Tampere charmed both critics and sold-out audiences. In 1969, Hair hit the year’s most memorable home run at Tampere Theatre Festival. Expect a repeat this summer!
