Lauri Lagle's productions delve into questions of how to find perception that is unmediated and what is the true value of interhuman contacts. In an age that is wholly politicised, his productions are poetic, often characterized by absurdist humour, ambivalent images, and the ability to unite the universal with the everyday. Lauri Lagle does not direct often, yet this is already his fourth work with the company of Theatre NO99. NO35, the currenly untitled new production by Lauri Lagle, looks into the minds of people living at a scientific base stationed in the middle of the nothingness, and their unrelenting drive towards the unknown. Constantly gathering new knowledge about the sounds that surround them, they wish to reach a point where the information ammounted thus far exhausts itself, and it would be possible to set up totally new hypothesises about the world. Yet before they reach that point, they must chew their way through knowledge of which there is more than ever before – and they must find a way to live together, all the four of them. NO35 is an expedition into the unknown, that is, into the human soul.
