WINTER SOLSTICE WEDDING

December 13, 2019

December 13, 2019 – January 13, 2020
Estonian Open Air Museum

A video and light performance on faithfulness, time and love. 

For one month an ancient fairy-tale with long-forgotten mythological characters is going to come alive at the Estonian Open Air Museum. Come and take part in an exciting walk to the mystical world. 

Only in selected evenings, the audience will gain a supernatural power to glance through closed doors and covered windows to find characters invisible to the naked eye bustling around and disappearing when the rooster crows for the third time.

Taavi Varm’s video installations to a play by Andres Noormets with sound arrangement by Ardo Ran Varres are projected on the walls and roofs of the farm houses, storehouses, windmill, and other buildings of the museum. 

The story which consists of six parts takes the audience to a late-night walk in the museum park where they may come across the devil, a kratt aka a mystical treasure-bearer, a mermaid, and the daughters of meadow matron Murueit. Only in selected evenings, the audience will gain a supernatural power to glance through closed doors and covered windows in which there are characters who are invisible to the naked eye going about their business, disappearing when the rooster crows for the third time.
