Tampere Biennale 2.1
Alma! premieres in February 2021
The central theme for the Tampere Biennale in 2020 is ‘nature’, a topic that has inspired artists throughout millennia.
The Tampere Biennale programme includes a wide variety of topics focusing on nature. Furthermore, the programme presents multiple world premieres of Finnish art works and compositions, with the added intent to include a diversity of artists in terms of age and gender. Additionally, in order to minimize the ecological footprint of the festival, a special emphasis has been placed on Finnish talent – regarding both the composers and the performing artists – with a guiding principle of “locally produced” music.
