Culture Landing takes productions, music and art on roundtrip in Estonia
On Monday, 2 May the Culture Landing begins its six-day tour, where the students of UT Viljandi Culture Academy introduce their most outstanding creative works to the wider public. The fourth year of the festival targets three cities—Narva, Tallinn and Tartu.
The Culture Landing includes students with various backgrounds—actors, dancers, musicians, craftsmen, cultural managers, who introduce their skills, profession and offer an exciting cultural experience through workshops, exhibitions, concerts, dance and theatre performances.
Students are properly armed for the landing, the preparatory rehearsals in front of the home audience in Viljandi took place already in mid-April. The team goes on tour with two mono-performances, five dance performances, two groups of musicians, an exhibition of the crafts department and Viljandi Vibes, which records live music videos. The first stop of the tour is Narva, after which they are headed to Tallinn and finally to Tartu, where the festival ends with a spectacular party, together with the fashion performance Mood-Performance-Dance and Athena Centre.
According to Eleri Helimets, third year student of Cultural Management and main organiser of the festival, Culture Landing allows young talented creative people to apply the acquired knowledge in practice and show the colourful works that they create every day in this culture nest.
“We invite all culture friends and those who wish to make their everyday life a bit more special to visit the festival. This is an especially good opportunity for secondary school students to meet UT Viljandi Culture Academy students, ask them questions and partake in their creation,” encourages Helimets to visit Culture Landing.
Culture Landing is in Narva on 2 and 3 May, in Tallinn on 4 and 5 May, and in Tartu on 6 and 7 May. They stay in each city for two days and repeat the same programme.
