Kanuti Gildi SAAL's 19th season.
Here is the first Kanuti Gildi SAAL’s booklet of the 19th season that actually started already with the grand festival of SAAL Biennaal, curated by Annika Üprus.
The light of a full bodied festival is still shining upon us as Alissa Šnaider’s “Weird tales I have tried to write” Chapter III is premiering on our opening night on 23rd of September. “Weird tales…” started with a photo project and had a grand spectacle in Noblessner Shipyard during SAAL Biennaal. Next to that we have invited two emerging stars of performing arts to our opening night - Elina Masing, who is still a student in Viljandi Culture Academy and Netti Nüganen who freshly graduated from SNDO. A night like this characterizes well our goal to work with established artists as well as ones that are in the beginning of their creative road.
Soon after Teater KELM and Karl Koppelmaa will premiere their new work. Having hosted them last year we can expect something fresh and surprising.
Last time we saw Mart Kangro with a solo was in 2013 with “waiting for tomorrow”, now in October “PAST PERFECT” is coming out. It goes without saying that something really special and thought-provoking is to be expected. “PAST PERFECT” will also travel straight away to Tartu together with “All that goes right” by the Biofilm Sisters - Arolin Raudva, Mari-Liis Eskusson, Katrin Kreutzberg and Alise Bokaldere. Kanuti Gildi SAAL @Tartu!
While we are touring in Tartu Birgit Landberg and Must Kast will visit us with the all popular “Peks mõisatallis”.
Our own co-productions will go on touring to Helsinki, Stockholm, Riga, Trondheim, Dublin and Bergen. In October we will see a new performance by an unique and well-known fashion artist and designer LAIVI and at the end of the month Estonian premiere of “Lighter than woman” - a lecture-performance by Kristina Norman that premiered in Santarcangelo Festival in Italy. Kanuti Gildi SAAL has not gone along with the unreasonable rise in ticket prices and will not do so in the foreseeable future. Theater has to be attainable for everybody. It`s not normal that prices for similar performances in Tallinn and Tartu are more expensive than in Berlin, Brussels or Vienna. Our prices have stayed the same for years. Happy new theater season!
