screams of fatherland


There is one actor on stage. Texts from the last 25 years speak from his lips and in his head and body. Sports commentaries, speeches by politicians, letters to the editor, journalistic reports, songs, slogans, interviews, classified ads, advertisements, titles, fears and joys. Not even a single comma has been altered in these texts. Yet everything is still different none the less.

Jaak Prints’s solo performance is an emotional summary of voices that make up the contemporary Estonian. This is a schizophrenic Estonia. Tirade and intoxication are heard simultaneously. Screams and shouts. Joy and sorrow.

Cast Jaak Prints
