Next SAMPO Festival will be August 25th-29th 2021
We are planning to arrange the next international SAMPO Puppet Theatre Festival in August 2021. Lets hope that everything will go as planned, the pandemic is history and we can get together then!
First performance on this years festival has been announced: SAMPO Festival warmly welcomes the puppeteer group Dirty Duckling from Turku with their brand new performance FUNNY! The premiere will be on SAMPO Festival 25.8.2021.
SAMPO Festival offers memorable, touching and entertaining performances for children and adults. One of the biggest puppetry festivals in Finland, it showcases artists from across the field, different styles of puppetry and visual theatre, and crosses borders between different fields of art. In addition to performances, the program also features films, workshops, outdoor performances, discussions and diverse artist meetings.
SAMPO Festival gives a place for encountering, also for professional puppeteers. For the first time in 2019, the Festival invited also guests from different countries around the world to see performances and take part in discussions. Domestic puppeteers have also had a chance to portray their upcoming work and ideas for a jury of professionals at our Open Stage event.
The festival is organized by Puppet Theatre Sampo.
