The Silence Festival will this year be held for the tenth time, from June 5 to 9, 2019, in the village of Kaukonen in Kittilä, Finnish Lapland. It is a multi-art festival with a programme made to measure for the living-rooms, yards, and lanes of the little host village. The heart of the festival is Kaukonen Community Hall.
The varied programme is a blend of contemporary circus, dance, theatre, concerts, workshops, discussions, and new multi-art and site-specific works. The festival's Artistic Directors are Henna Kaikula and Mikko Perkola.
The Silence Festival is arranged by the Silence Organisation, an artist association based in Kittilä. In addition to organizing the festival, the association maintains an artist's residence in the village of Kaukonen, puts on a year-round programme of concerts and performances in Kittilä, and promotes the potential for making art in Lapland by international networking and other means. The Silence Festival got the State Prize for Circus Art in 2017.
