Spring-time Luts

Andrus Kivirähk

2012 stipend from Kristi and Siim Kallas’ Fund to Andrus Kivirähk, Uku Uusberg and Roland Laos.

“Luts as a phenomenon; especially witty references to the prototypes and situations of Spring (Kevade) that one instantly recognizes. The audience gets to laugh wholeheartedly and is moved to tears.
Imagination is sparked by Pille Jänes’ scenic design that trusts the emptiness of the big stage; sounds make up a big part of the atmosphere, with authentic and mysterious noises playing an even more important role than music. The actors that surround Luts play with thoughtful joyfulness, here and there one can catch glimpses of old-school theatre; it’s as if the intonations of one-time masters of Backyard can be heard. The play includes lots of interesting scenes. /---/ Spring-time Luts is our own story. Happy and homely, a buskin-free tribute to our own Oskar Luts, to the Estonian language and the Estonian mind. Kivirähk has hidden into the text a friendly reminder that our short lives could be so much simpler, much more genuine and natural. Much more Spring-like.”
