Raxu Taskunen

...before all it is verbal and visual fire cracker.

- Annikki Alku, Demokraatti


Heiskanen certainly is not taking the easy way out.

- Jussi Tossavainen, Helsingin Sanomat


Simo Heiskanen's  puppet theatre musical Raxu Taskunen is a show, where all the characters are played by Heiskanen. The story of the musical swirls from one continent to the next, from the face of the earth and underground and back - all to the beat of exhilarating rhymes and intimate songs.


The world is viewed by Raxu Taskunen, a small critter who can easily fit in a pocket. Raxu is always hungry. He is a witty and lively but lazy personality who tries hard to avoid boring things, like going to sleep early or eating healthy food.


The show is suitable for children from 3 to 8 years and their families. The show is performed in Finnish, but even those who are learning Finnish can enjoy it.


RAXU TASKUNEN is scheduled to visit Shopping Centre Entresse in Espoo this November and December.
