Finland: Espoo City Theatre's Estonian weeks

During the Espoo City Theatre's Estonian weeks, it's possible to enjoy exciting theatre productions from both Tallinn and Viljandi.

Programme:

Estonian Drama Theatre "Saraband"
Tue 27th February 7 p.m.
Wed 28th February 7 p.m.

The production is based on Ingmar Bergman's film with the same name, where ex-spouses Marianne and Johan meet after many years. The play examines the background of relationships of dependence and explores the boundaries of love and selfishness.

Director Peeter Raudsepp
Cast Kersti Kreismann, Martin Veinmann, Ester Kuntu, Jaan Rekkor

Performed in Estonian, subtitles in Finnish.

Von Krahl Theatre "Vaimukuskuss"
Sat 3rd March 7 p.m.
Sun 4th March 3 p.m.

The production combines theatre, dance and modern circus into a lively, absurd and talented description of communication difficulties. You'll leave the theatre, soul filled with lightness and pureness.

Director Renate Keerd
Cast Kait Kall, Karl-Andreas Kalmet, Märt Pius, Priit Pius

Performed in Estonian, subtitles in Finnish.

Ugala Theatre "Mother's Day"
Thu 8th March 7 p.m.
Fri 9th March 7 p.m.
Sat 10th March 2 p.m.

"Mother's Day" turns the familiar situation upside down. If the average mother answers within a day up to three hundred questions posed by their children, when can mothers ask their own questions? The production presents four mothers, the heroes of everyday life.

Director Liis Aedmaa
Cast Jaana Kena, Kadri Lepp, Triinu Meriste and Terje Pennie

Performed in Estonian, subtitles in Finnish.

Organizers: Espoo City Theatre, Embassy of the Republic of Estonia in Helsinki and Estonian Institute.
