Outi Sippola

puppet theatre artist

I’m a puppet theatre artist from Piikkiö.

I have worked with various puppetry ensembles in Finland and abroad. My most recent projects include Romeo and Juliet, a joint project of Tehdas Teatteri and Aura of Puppets in Turku, and Sisu Is in the Heart, a work of community art by the American Park Cofield. In addition to creating my own artistic work, I serve as a member of the artistic committee of the Turku International Puppetry Festival (TIP).

At the Saari Residence, I will be writing a book about puppet theatre, a guide for adult audiences. It is intended to provide spectators with tools for truly understanding and enjoying modern puppetry.
