Grus Grus Theatre: Perästä kuuluu!

Grus Grus Theatre’s clown performance for the whole family takes you on a surprising exploration of the human brain and gut. The guides are the clown experts Ripuliina and Stoppe von Umme, who are, at least in their own opinion, highly competent.

Acclaimed clown maestro Taina Mäki-Iso visits Grus Grus Theatre for the first time and joins forces with highly interesting performers Janna Haavisto and Sofia Molin. The performance has been written by its director Taina Mäki-Iso and the team. The production is Grus Grus Theatre’s main production of 2022, with the participation of its entire core artistic team and a number of great guest artists.
