Theatre 2.0 is an independent professional theatre founded in 2010. We work in close collaboration with other theatres and organizations in and outside the field of theatre. We develop and produce new Finnish plays and use methods of applied theatre in our artistic work. Our goal is to continuously research and develop through practice the different structures and working methods of theatre. We are especially interested in the ways production intertwines with art in the most fruitful manner.
Theatre 2.0 received Finnish Cultural Fund’s Olavi Veistäjä award in 2013.
New Play Finland
New Play Finland (UNO*) was a initiative started in 2016 by Theatre 2.0. The project ended in June 2022. With UNO we brought together playwrights, theatres and other theatre related organizations. We facilitated a dialogue – for theatre professionals to find new ways to collaborate with writers to further cultivate new Finnish drama. Our aim was to raise the appreciation of Finnish playwrights, and thus ensure the best possible quality of new Finnish plays also in the future.
* UNO comes from the programme's Finnish name Uuden Näytelmän Ohjelma
