TOTEM Theatre was founded in 1986. It is one of the three professional theatres in Espoo focusing on children’s theatre. TOTEM Theatre is a professional travelling theatre. The main function is to promote the Finnish children’s culture in the Theatre’s home town Espoo, as well as elsewhere in Finland. The Theatre carries out this task by producing theatre performances directed to children as well as arts education activities.
The TOTEM-theatre confines itself to the form of small-scale theatrical performances where visuality, too, continues the minimalistic line. The esthetics of the performances created by the combination of different art forms is the artistic choice of The TOTEM Theatre. The unity it creates allows the the audience of children to complement the story with their own thoughts, feelings, and words. Information about our current reportoire can be found here.
TOTEM-theatre tours around Finland and can also be booked to festivals, schools and events abroad. Our prices are very moderate, as the plays only have two actors. We tour with the same play for a whole year. For the last information about the play and our schedules, please contact us!
