KOM-teatteri was founded in Helsinki 1971 and is one of the oldest Finnish theatre companies with a dedicated and ever growing audience. The theatre company was born out of need to influence the society and to create quality theatre both artistically ambitious and versatile. Since then KOM-teatteri performances have been touring around the world, they have released several albums, which are considered classics now, and they have produced several concerts and shows that have left an indelible mark on the Finnish theatre history throughout the last decades. Through its art KOM-teatteri has always upheld to the principles of freedom, fraternity and equality, creating performances about the ever changing society and also about the small individuals trapped and lost in this turmoil.
KOM-teatteri is best known for offering modern Finnish drama to its audiences, but the company has also provided international classics, novel based dramas, music theatre, comedy, tragedy and everything in between. KOM-teatteri’s ”Lauluja paremmasta maailmasta” (Songs for a better world) is still sang all over Finland and every single new generation of the KOM-teatteri gets to write their own songs. KOM-teatteri looks into the future but remembers its past. This is why the company is ready to renew itself, but never willing to give up on its ground principles.
