By Renate Keerd
Performed by Getter Meresmaa, Steffi Pähn, Anti Kobin, Sander Roosimagi

YLT is a metaphysical journey through the strains of one’s inner sea. It is a production for everyone who enjoys absurdly spectacular and illogically fantastical theatre. Renate Keerd’s productions speak of life in her own unique way - offering the audience moments of recognition, tickling their perception spectrum, and playing with irony, humour, and the absurdity of life.

Theater der Lüfte
by Thalia Theater

“If it’s not possible on the ground of earth, we play from now on in the skies!”
— Thalia Theater Hamburg in response to the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Angels and other spirits of the air have always been the cybernetic messengers between heaven and earth. Humans have no talent to be air spirits or angels. Art does. And with it: the artists.
Seldom has the dream of flying and disappearing, of light and hope, of poetry, dance and music been more understandable than right now.

For serval reasons theatre has been banned again and again from live stages through thousands of years of history and came back every time.

Jamás dejaré de mirar el mar (I Will Never Stop Looking at the Sea in English)
by Literateatro
Author and Director: Mercedes Huerta

I will never stop looking at the sea, is a dialogue for a tango. Full of loneliness, anguish, encounters and disagreement, through two other characters charged with melancholy.

The genius of Piazzolla accompanies, the music and the characters go hand in hand, rescuing them for an instant from death, who inevitably caresses in solitude and silence. Only there, in the intimacy of the scene, through the doors of the senses, the characters provoke listen and sing their notes that appear to rescue them from the memory there stored in the hollow, inside, of what precisely represents the forgetfulness and the danger of existing from which we flee, like lost birds ...

Theatre Brings Unity and Peace to Humanity

Theatre is the most wonderful means of sharing our unique forms of art and culture. Moreover, it reveals the true nature of humans – each play and each performance help us to be a human regardless of its form and origin. Mongolia may seem so far away - in the middle of nowhere as many say - and its population may seem insignificant. However, through the wonderful and rich creations of theatrical works we bring cultures from distant lands closer to our people. The stories we tell whether they are of our time or of the past are the same stories told everywhere in the world in theatres. Long live the theatre!
