Tampere Theater Theater is one of Europe's most important theater festivals, presenting the most interesting and topical performances of Finnish theater and offering international top-level visits around the world. High quality software includes both new drama, contemporary theater, modernized classics, dance theater, contemporary circus as well as street theater - seven days of theater celebration. The Tampere Theater Festival was founded in 1968. In the 1960s, the era of the Cultural Revolution was lived in which Aamulehti's critic and fiery theater artist Olavi Veistas presented the idea of a theater festival to Mayor Erkki Lindfors. In the autumn of 1968, the City of Tampere became a founder member of the Tampere Theater Theater, and under the leadership of the city, the theater districts began to design the first festival next August. The other founders were the Tampere Theater Club, the Tampere Workers' Theater, the Tampere Theater and the actor associations of both theaters.
The ambition was to act as an aggregate review of the performing Finnish theater. That's what happened - The Theater Week offered an opportunity to compare and create a complete picture of theaters. It also provided an excellent framework for seminars, negotiations and meetings. The economy of the first theater festival forced the organizers to settle for the demonstration of the Tampere forces instead of a nationwide review, and so part of the city's amateur theaters was also an opportunity to join. The actual surprise trap, both the audience magnet and the criticism came from the ranks of enthusiasts: The Popteatter's Hair Caliber Hair formed an economic leg for the first Tampere Theater Theater.
