Red Nose Company: Don Quixote at Fringe Festivals


True virtuosity – the actors have the ability to be completely present and to juggle impulses. – Helsingin Sanomat

Outstanding, multi-layered, entertaining – Spectator

Red Nose Company presents Don Quixote – the mother of all road trips. Actors Timo Ruuskanen and Tuukka Vasama have been working together as a clown duo since 2012. After years on tour, it was inevitable to let their clowns Mike & Zin become Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.

For centuries, the adventures of Don Quixote have been at the very heart of European culture. The themes of the play – friendship, idealism, multicultural issues – seem to become more and more relevant in the world we live and love in.

Red Nose Company takes the audience on a journey through Europe. What do the wandering hot plains of La Mancha and the snowy, frozen tundra of Lapland have in common? Who is an immigrant? What is humanity, and what makes us all laugh? And, most importantly, what does a person do when faced with injustice?
