Finns at Edinburgh Fringe  

Five Finnish performances will be presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this upcoming Summer. Ranging from physical theatre to monologues and contemporary dance, the From Start to Finnish program brings together individuals who each perceive and interact with the world slightly different than the other, a one-man circus show, a man who’s lost everything but his torso, a mother challenging the myths of motherhood and two fast-talking, smooth moving receptionists in the service industry. 
From Start to Finnish showcase will once again present Finnish artists and works at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe August 5-29.  
The performances include physical theatre performances Receptionists and Lion; monologues Raging Mother and Johnny Got His Gun; as well as of the contemporary dance performance Kvartetto. The performances will be shown at the Summerhall, Zoo Southside and Assembly Rooms venues in Edinburgh.  
The Start to Finnish showcase was set up in 2011 by ACE-Production and the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland and has since its inception presented some 30 pieces of work at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe celebrates its 75th anniversary in August and presents annually more than 2000 shows.
