Intercultural family workshop, in collaboration with PROMIS and Festival FIKA(S)


An empty block is full of endless possibilities. Both a finished shape and an unfinished form, it evolves as the imagination takes over! Block Theatre is a form of visual theatre and a method that centers on the Human-Shaped Reconstruction Kit, carved out of different types of wood. Block Theatre borrows from the visual theater of the show of the same name presented at the festival.This workshop invites children and parents to build their own stories, favorite places and dreams through block sculpting.

An intriguing and fun family time with an wonderful artist from Finland, Roosa Halme.

Bilingual, English and French








KO-KOO-MO is a visual art concept based on creativity, and free from cultural and language barriers. Developed by Roosa Halme, Rai Ruohonen and Annukka Ketola, and related to block play, the concept is flexible, adaptable, and not aimed at a specific demographic.

Block Theatre first saw the light of day in July 2011 in the café of a local art museum in Pori, Finland. Since then, it has been presented in theatres, schools, daycare centres, retirement homes, mother and child shelters, psychiatric hospitals, and care units for disabled people in Finland, Europe, and Asia. In 2021, after 10 years of working with blocks, KO-KOO-MO published a book, Method Manual to the World of Wooden Blocks.

KO-KOO-MO encourages spontaneous construction. The concept focuses on expressing emotions, solving problems, and interacting through play. KO-KOO-MO invites everyone to join in the adventure in creative thinking.
