SASHA PEPELYAYEV BACK AT NO99
Sasha Pepelyayev, a director of physical theatre known for his imaginative adaptions of classics, is once again back working at Theatre NO99. Having previously directed 'NO86,5 tsuaF' and 'NO79 Margarita and Master", based on Goethe and Bulgakov respectively, he is currently in rehearsal (with acting students of the Drama School of Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre) with "The Twelve".

A 100 years later, Pepelyayev brings it to stage as 'NOДвенадцать', а powerful feat of physical theatre. Read more.

new: the red balloonKonrad wakes up one morning and discovers that he is all alone in his apartment in the city. He has not left his apartment for many years already. Why go out? Better to sit between four walls than to go to the four winds. Yet now Konrad has to go out into the city. He cautiously opens the door and steps out into the unknown.
On December 3 premiered "The Red Balloon" by our guest director Mart Kampus. The production is inspired by the Albert Lamorisse film The Red Balloon (1956).
