Teatteri Telakka Tampere – Different theatre

Theaters

"Teatteri Telakka" is one of my favorite small theaters of Tampere. It's in an old customs area that used to be closed to the public when I was a child...

My favourite small theatre is Teatteri Telakka. Its plays are often staged by visiting directors and other small theater groups from Finland & abroad. The cast is professional but many do other work, too, to earn their living - like performing as a clown in a children’s hospital or teaching acting in school. So the plays often have limited time they are on and there aren't always shows going on. That’s why I follow their Facebook page to get to know about the plays that interest me.

The best one I have seen in Teatteri Telakka is so far a modern version but at the same time classic and loyal to the original script of ”War and Peace” by Leo Tolstoy. I liked it so much that I saw it twice! There is also the nice bohemian restaurant Ravintola Telakka, through which you go to the theatre, that serves drinks & coffee and has a nice menu with vegetarian alternatives. During the breaks, I often like to have a glass of port wine or sherry.

The place itself is a unique part of an old customs area that used to be closed to the public when I was a child. Now, the pretty red brick buildings typical of old industrial Tampere host also live music and art. Kulttuuritalo Telakka  has its own facebook page where you can check what is on at the moment. Across the square you will find Tullikamari where we often go to listen to bands like Maustetytöt.
