Kulttuurimylly Festival 2019 is the first ever international street theatre and puppetry festival in Eastern Helsinki, Finland.  

This festival will bring a bright beam of Cuban sunshine to the north as our dear friends and internationally acclaimed artists, puppet master and street theatre wizard Adan Rodriquez & extraordinary musician and magical theatre composer Raul Valdes with their team of street theatre artists from Cuba will join us. The festival programme will include Street Theatre & Puppetry Carnival, Cuban Puppetry and Street Theatre Master Class for professional artists, Art in Suburbs Seminar and other performances, workshops and special events.

We have now opened registration for artists. Programme is being updated through the spring and tickets for the shows will be available in August. Nordic puppeteers have a unique opportunity to join the festival through Meeting Point Finland 2019 project that offers artist grants.

The festival is hosted by East Helsinki bound visual theatre Maria Baric Company and cultural centre Kulttuurimylly and organised in co-operation with UNIMA Finland.

We welcome our next-door neighbours, strangers from the other side of the street, friends across the oceans and adventurous travellers of all kinds. Approach Finland’s capital from a whole new and inspiring perspective, experience Eastern Helsinki like never before and join us in creating something new and unique in this community! 

See you in September!
