NEU NOW LIVE is nearly ready to hit Tallinn!
Two days to go to the LIVE Festival, and a special energy is in the air: most artists have arrived to Estonia today, and have finally met the ELIA organizers, artistic directors and each other face to face.
While posters and flyers can be seen all over the charmingly medieval center of town, the organizers and their coffee machines were working at full capacity, art works have started arriving to the venues and rehearsals have begun.
We have met most artists participating in NEU NOW LIVE this afternoon, in the warm atmosphere of Van Krahl, the festival bar. Each artist has given a brief introduction to his or her work or performance and artistic background. Though seemingly shy in the beginning, the artists have quickly started getting to know each other and discovering how to pronounce the names of the venues where their works will be presented. Only the pages of the festival catalogue, hot off the printing press, have managed to direct people’s attention away from each other, and towards its gripping contents.
Although the temperature in Tallinn is decresing every day, we, just like the actors, are all warming up for an inspiring third edition of NEU NOW LIVE.
