SAMPO 2018

Organised for the second time, the international puppet theatre festival will bring the audience a brilliant selection of puppetry and visual theatre. SAMPO 2018 demonstrates how versatile, touching and of artistically high quality puppet theatre can be. It is not just for children, but for everybody; it is not small, but grand. It is rugged, beautiful, magical and delicate.

The programme includes shows for children and adults, meetings with artists, workshops, exhibitions, concerts, a masterclass for professionals, discussions and a festival club. SAMPO 2018 spreads out into several venues in the centre of Helsinki to bring joy and experiences to all ages.
