Best productions from near and far
At Espoo City Theatre – The International Theatre of Finland we bring together our broad range of in-house productions with the finest domestic and international visiting performances.
With programming befitting a performing arts festival, Espoo City Theatre is unlike most theatres in Finland. For over 30 years now, the theatre has presented up to four world-class international visits each season, in addition to domestic visiting performances. Our Louhisali stage has featured cutting-edge talent from home and abroad, performing in many languages, over the years. Each spring, Espoo City Theatre hosts the Viro-viikot festival presenting the most ambitious new work from Estonia.
Cutting-edge, open and inclusive platform for all performing arts
We aim to be an open and inclusive platform for all performing arts. Our bold programming reflects the changing world around us. In addition to a more classical theatre repertoire, Espoo City Theatre regularly presents contemporary circus, dance, opera, and performance art.
Espoo City Theatre’s mission is to operate proactively with a diverse set of cultural practitioners, and to act as a meeting point for performing arts and audiences. Our theatre proudly promotes openness and diversity in society and works to create a supportive environment for all arts.
