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 Programme Finland

New Play Programme Finland (UNO*) is a long-term project started in 2016 by Theatre 2.0. With UNO we bring together playwrights, theatres and other theatre related organisations. We set the stage for dialogue – for theatre professionals to find new ways to collaborate with writers to further cultivate new Finnish drama. UNO eases the path of new plays into high-quality performances all across Finland. We strive for excellence!

Our aim is to raise the appreciation of Finnish playwrights, and thus ensure the best possible quality of new Finnish plays also in the future. We also want to make new Finnish quality plays known internationally.

* UNO comes from the programme's Finnish name Uuden Näytelmän Ohjelma
