BORDERS

Work of art which combines music and poetry performed in the twin cities divided by the border

BORDERS tell about the challenges at the border, the fears with crossing borders and the courage to cross them. It reflects on the emergence of new boundaries, boundaries within us and in our lives.

BORDERS deal with how borders create security or threat. Life in border areas can all of a sudden become dangerous, as the war in Ukraine has shown. Is the border between Russia and the West becoming impassable again for years? How do borders change us?

BORDERS will be completed in Tartu 2024's main programme. It is presented three years in a row in the EU capitals of culture, in the area of ​​which the twin cities are located. Thus, the work of art will be performed in six different countries.

BORDERS is a work of art in which the authors themselves cross different boundaries - they have not collaborated with each other before, but are all top professionals in their own field. They cross their safe boundaries, and share their know-how and network among their partners, and thus everyone gets more.
