The most popular theatre clowns in Finland, Timo Ruuskanen and Tuukka Vasama, have been touring together for six years. In their shows they combine classical drama and contemporary texts with physical comedy, live music and witty stand up -like comedy.

The idealistic novel by Miguel de Cervantes is the mother of all road trips. Don Quixote heroically attacks all the inconveniences in the world with his loyal friend Sancho Panza.

The performance is directed by Otso Kautto, and it is full of historical facts, actualities and poetic moments – in Cervantes´ spirit.

Don Quixote is a large co-production with independent theatre groups Red Nose Company and Quo Vadis, together with city theatres from Kuopio, Lahti, Tampere and Turku. The premiere was in January 2019, and the performance will be shown over 100 times during the next two years.

Duration: 2 h 10 min, incl. intermission
Age recommendation: For adults and youth from 13 up.
Performances in autumn 2019: Helsinki, Kuopio, Lahti, Pieksämäki, Savonlinna, Tampere, Turku, Tuusula.

Red Nose Company is currently preparing Spanish and English versions for international touring.
