Description - Finland's National Theatre 1974-1991: The Two Decades of Generational Contests, Cultural Upheavals, and International Cold War Politics by Pirkko Koski

This study analyses the Finnish National Theatre's activities throughout the decades during which the post-war generation with its new societal and theatrical views was rising to power, and during which Europe, divided by the Iron Curtain, was maturing to break the boundaries dividing it.

Pirkko Koski summarizes the activities of the Finnish National Theatre as a cultural factor and as a part of the Finnish theatre field during 1970s and 1980s. Alongside this he examines the general requirements, resources and structures for activity, including artists, places, geographical position, performances and the analysis on the societal conditions.

This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of European theatre and history.
