ADAM AND EVE ------------

A ballet from the beginning of humanity

Adam and Eve's story is one the most renowned creation myths: God creates the man and bestows him the ideal home. Soon God realises that the man is unhappy in his loneliness and creates him the woman - and the two are happy amongst each other. Their blissful life could last forever, but they overstep the only boundary and taste the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This is the birth of the first sin, and God is forced to exile the man and the woman from paradise.

This seemingly simple and well-known story raises many burning questions. What does the ideal life mean? Would it be a world without sins? How about responsibility and judgement? VAT Theatre company sets off to investigate this story as a ballet together with the choreographer Marge Ehrenbusch. Along with other questions they want to ask themselves what can a drama actor offer to ballet and vice versa?

The Tower Hall of Estonian National Library is a place for VAT Theatre where artistic experiments can take place. It is also there that Tanel Saar directed his previous production "Tsar Saltan". This time his playful explorations continue with a new production of ballet.

Duration: 1h and 20 minutes, no intermission. 

Premiere: May 19, 2015 in National Library Tower Hall.

In order to enter the Tower Hall the audience gathers in front of the Library information desk.
