Tallinn

As part of the Francophonie festival, the play Misanthrope will be performed 3 shows with French subtitles, at the Estonian Drama Theatre (Eesti Draamateater). Cast members are 4th year students at the Estonian Music and Theatre Academy. The subtitled performances will take place 16, 21, 22 March at 7pm.

Anu Lamp, the play’s director, is a Speech-on-stage teacher at the Estonian Music and Theatre academy, as long as a comedian at the Tallinn City Theatre. She says : “The Misanthrop is my Molière’s favourite play. The main theme of the play-how to speak the truth and not get stuck on the flypaper of hypocrisy while remaining honest witgh oneself in life amongst the human community that surrounds us – is one of the most important questions regardless of the era in which we live. It is as important as the ability to recognize love. The previous times when I have worked with this play at the theatre school, I have been influenced by the play’s definition as a comedy. This time I chose a Chekhovian approach that did not rule out but opened our eyes to reading the text with a new gaze.”

The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, created in 1957, is the main University for performing Arts in Estonia (degrees for comedians, directors, playwrights). Misanthrope is the springtime examination work for students who will be graduating in the summer of 2016.

The project started in Speech-on-stage class. Laura Kalle, a playwrights student says : “Speech-on-stage classes are a key part of our studies. These lectures teach us how to translate ideas into words, and what kind of feelings and techniques to use for each kind of text.” Anu Lamp’s sense of accuracy has encouraged the students to increase their focusing ability. It also taught them to pay as much attention to details as to the work as whole.
