A travelling children’s theatre
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.
