About Dockteatern Tittut
Dockteatern Tittut was founded in 1977 by Ing-Mari Tirén. At the time, theatre for children under the age of five, was unheard of. The common idea was that children at this young age were yet too undeveloped to comprehend art. By offering high quality theatre to the youngest, Ing-Mari Tirén proved this untrue. A new era of Swedish theatre had begun. Today, the understanding of children and their conception of art has changed. In Sweden there is a broad supply of culture for the youngest and theatre is now even created for babies and toddlers. Since 1977 Dockteatern Tittut has created artistically exciting strong performances, always with the young child in focus. For many of our young visitors it is the first time going to the theatre. Through the years we have found that introducing the show with a prelude outside the theatre space, is a very effective way to build trust, curiosity and a desire to enter the magical world of theatre. We take great respect in our young audience and we have high expectations on ourselves to deliver high quality theatre. We have worked with some of Sweden’s most accomplished puppet makers, illustrators and children book authors. We have collaborated with the Royal Swedish Opera, Riksteatern and Dans I Nord. We also regularly work with the world’s leading shadowtheatre director; Fabrizio Montecchi. About 60% of our budget is covered by ticket sales. The rest is covered by grants and governmental support.
