Taimine is a professional touring theatre, founded in 2002. Taimine produces new drama with current themes for children and youth. Our performances focus on storytelling that addresses the audience directly and supports children’s views on things. We aim to provide our audience with both a positive and fun theatre experience and the tools to understand themselves and their surroundings better. Taimine performs annually for about 45 000 children and teenagers in schools all around Finland, but also in other Nordic and European countries. In 2015 Taimine was awarded the International Children’s Day Award by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture for our achievements and ongoing work for children’s cultural education.
Taimine is a member of the theatre organization ASSITEJ, which is an international
children’s and youth theatre organization, that consists of members from 80 countries worldwide.
