SAMPO Festival in Helsinki, Espoo & Sipoo 24.-28.8.2022

First lady of Finland, Mrs. Jenni Haukio is the patron of SAMPO Festival

“SAMPO Festival, through its high-level and distinctive international program, offers opportunities to immerse oneself into the most inspiring aspects of contemporary puppetry. Puppet theatre as an ancient art form is still powerfully enchanting; for a modern person a moment at the puppet theatre is like a meditative opportunity for refreshment, where a humane form of expression free from technological saturation supports concentration on presence and the deepest meanings of the performances.” – Jenni Haukio, patron of SAMPO 2022 Festival
