THEATRE

Ryhmäteatteri is Finland's oldest so-called free theatre company. It has three separate stages in use in Helsinki: the Pengerkatu premises with 300 seats, the Helsinginkatu premises with 380 seats and the Suomenlinna summer theatre in the Hyvän Omantunnon linnake with 560 seats. With a total of over 1000 auditorium seats, Ryhmäteatteri is by far the biggest Finnish non-institutional theatre and a notable cultural operator in the Helsinki metropolitan area. The company's lightweight organization along with its good contacts with the most interesting playwrights of the country enable Ryhmäteatteri to level with what's going on in the world today. Advancing new Finnish drama is important to us. In the past four years as many as seven Finnish premieres have been part of our repertoire. Ryhmäteatteri also delves into world-literature classics on a regular basis. We have produced interpretations of classics from Dostoyevsky to Shakespeare that all bite into our own time.

The crucial resource of the theatre ever since the beginning has been the actors. In Ryhmäteatteri there work many of Finland's top actors from all generations. Ryhmäteatteri is an association and as such an organization whose task is not to gain financial profit, but to create and further such values that encourage the individual to be responsible for her/himself and the world. Ryhmäteatteri wants to do its own part in the task of enhancing the faith in individual's possibilities to make a difference and in the significance of tiny deeds. In Ryhmäteatteri we sincerely believe that it is possible to achieve another kind of world.

THEATRE

The Pori based Rakastajat-teatteri is Satakunta's only free professional theatre company. The theatre was founded in 1991 and it offers brave, artistically uncompromising, intense and thought provoking room theatre, not forgetting humour and the madness of life. 

The theatre was named after its all-time premiere, Harold Pinter's play The Lover ("Rakastaja" in Finnish). 

In addition to its own theatre and club repertoire Rakastajat-teatteri also produces e.g. the annual theatre festival for free professional companies namedVapaiden ammattiryhmien Lain§uojattomat.
