Tiina Puumalainen and Teppo Järvinen both have a long career in the Finnish theatre for stages big and small. This website focuses on their collaboration as a director-scenographer couple on drama, musical theatre, dance and opera productions. But on their personal résumés there is also information on their individual projects, writing and work for television and other medias.
Studio Drammatica is our dream factory,
our home stage,
what we do, who we are.
We live in Finland, in a small town of Kaarina which is situated next to Turku (Åbo). Our home and atelier is in Rauhalinna, a seaside paradise from 1850 (though in need of our constant love and care).
But we also work globally as a team.
Our dear home base and theatre in Finland is Tampereen Työväen Teatteri (TTT), one of the prestigious national stages of Finland.
With almost 120 years of experience of being modern,
TTT has become one of the largest Finnish repertoire theatres,
employing annually over 300 theatre professionals (cast, creatives, crew) for the 10 to 15 premieres that are produced to our 4 stages for audiences of all ages. House productions include all genres with classics as well as contemporary drama. We are proud of our permanent resident posts in the TTT ensemble.
