About Rimpparemmi

Dance Theatre Rimpparemmi is a locally remarkable professional theatre that tours around Finland, including even the northernmost parts of Lapland. Increasing the accessibility and appreciation of dance as an art form is a substantial part of Rimpparemmi’s work.

 

Yearly, the ensemble produces from two to four full-length performances to audiences of varied ages.

Every year, Dance Theatre Rimpparemmi produces at least one performance and workshop for children, which are performed extensively around Lapland as well as other parts of Finland. Rimpparemmi also has a dance theatre group for teenagers who want to learn different styles of dance as well as other means of theatrical expression.
