Theatre festival "Sampo - the happy mill", Finland

At the beginning of March we had an opportunity to send our teacher, Ekaterina Onatskaia, and three of our older students to take part in drama festival "Sampo - the happy mill" in Yuvyaskylya, Finland. They were very fortunate to see plays from different theatre groups. Many collectives that took part in this festival were just amateur groups, but the quality of their acting and the emotions that they stirred in the audience were truly unbelievable and made a big impression on our participants. "We were incredibly lucky to see these plays, take part in discussions about them and also take masterclasses and workshops with professional drama actors": their feedback upon returning. We can't wait to be part of this festival again next year!
