lahus 4x5in np

The time: now. A journalist and a politician are trapped in the bowels of the building. Both are hiding something. They are surrounded by boxes loaded with stories of the diaspora - letters, interviews, audio-tapes. These fragments of the past are somehow tied to the present. And an old secret threatens to reveal itself...

Director: Üllar Saaremäe
Artist: Marion Undusk
Light Designer: Märt Sell
Actors: Grete Jürgenson, Tiina Mälberg, Toomas Suuman, Imre Õunapuu.

In 2016, the Estonian Studies Centre/Museum of Estonians Abroad commissioned the Rakvere Theatre to produce a show that would become our joint gift to the Republic of Estonia which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. The play debuted in Rakvere, Estonia last spring. The play is sponsored by the Government Office of Estonia (Estonia 100) and the Integration Foundation. The project is part of the development plan for the Compatriots Program 2014-2020.

The theatre company explored the concept of contact among Estonians separated by the Iron Curtain, and an ocean. Playwright Liisi Rohumäe dreamed up a story set in the Tartu College archives.

Thank you to: Kaja Telmet (idea), Piret Noorhani (project manager), Erni Kask (project manager), Marika Mayfield (archives assistance), Tiina Kaia Ets (English translation), Ohio Northern University, College of Arts and Science.

In Estonian with English translation.
