Ilmatila is a Hesinki-based contemporary circus group founded by a circus artist and choreographer Ilona Jäntti and an architect and animator Tuula Jeker in 2007. Ilmatila combines aerial acrobatics and site-specific aspects. Sarana was born out of the desire to create a performance in a small and everyday place.

Sarana won the Itu prize 2021 given by The Finnish Children’s Cultural Centers.

Hurraa! Festival 12.–20.3.2022

Virtuosity in the doorway, swans on a silver lake and men in wool socks!

The municipal cultural services of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, in cooperation with ASSITEJ Finland, organise the Hurraa! festival of performing arts for children and young people on 12–20 March 2022. The festival offers high-quality performances for children, young people and families in the cultural centres of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The programme includes physical theatre, circus, dance and puppet theatre. Traditionally known as a showcase for fresh Finnish performance art, the 2022 Hurraa! festival will also feature international performances produced by ASSITEJ Finland.

The Finnish highlights of the 2022 Hurraa! festival include: Ovisilmä by Teatteri QO, Prinsessa Pikkiriikki by Nukketeatteri Kuuma Ankanpoikanen & Tehdasteatteri, Suru puserossa by Teatteri Tuomikko, Piste, piste, piste by Company Portmanteau, Frankenstein by Red Nose Company and Sarana by Ilmatila. The international programme consists of four exciting performances originally intended for the 2020 Bravo! festival, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the 2022 Hurraa! festival, we will finally see M.I.S. – Natten Lang by Don Gnu from Denmark, Tvärslöjd by Kompani Giraff from Sweden, LILLA SVANSJÖN by Claire Parsons Co. from Sweden and Kuuki by Art Fraction Foundation & JIENKYO from Poland and Japan.
