Theatre Movement: NOUSUT Festival 30.8.-1.9.2024

August 30 - 17:00 - September 1 - 20:00 EEST


NOUSUT Festival 30.8.–1.9.2024

NOUSUT Festival is a celebration and a platform for new theatre makers to take off, create interesting performances supported by well merited theatre professionals. The festival is organized as part of the Theatre in Palm project (Theatre Movement) by Turku Arts Academy and Turku based theatre Tehdas Teatteri.

This year the festival gives the stage to 3 different, new and intriguing original pieces, all created by this year’s Turku Arts Academy graduates.


AUTIO MAA (Empty Earth) by Meri Salo is a scorching hot dystopia about climate change that combines puppet and mask theater with ancient Greek inspired chorus.

MÄDÄNNÄINEN by Petra Lumme deals with the individual grief process. A process that often happens just like the thing that caused it, unnoticed and without warning. This show is a dive into grief, its repressibility, sensitivity and powerlessness.


PORTTI (THE GATE) by Tuomas Vainionpää is a story about a guard who realizes they have become part of a fascist dictatorship and its machinery of violence. This performance, narrated through object theatre, light, sound, and a single actor, explores the development of an unnamed genocide in ten stages.

NOUSUT is a unique festival born out of the need and desire to connect emerging theatre artists with the already established theatre makers. It plays an important part in the Turku Arts Academy’s curriculum for theatre art studies offering the first year students a place to immerse themselves to the local theatre scene and at the same time, giving the graduating students a chance to shine and find audiences to their work.
