Lizzy McPretty (GER)

Music

The band “Lizzy McPretty” from Leipzig, Germany has found their very own sound. The unusual line-up of the trio (git, tb, dr, voc) opens up fresh, unspoilt sound worlds and so spherical jazz sounds can be found next to an authentic chicken picking guitar and bluesy melodies exist next to stomping country rhythms. Here you can hear craftsmanship and handmade music with a lot of love for detail. The band moves light-footedly between the genres and uses typical country clichés on the one hand, but knows just as well how to surprise with unexpected pop sounds

Performing in Césis, Tallinn, Narva, Põlva and Tartu

Narva Theatre Club (EST)

Theatre

Narwa Theater is a unique project created by the legendary “Giraffe Royal” family team.
This is a Creative Cluster.
Participants of the project are unemployed people of Narva.

The unique character of the project.
We want to create a theater that everyone understands, regardless of nationality, religion, cultural code, age or social status. Our basis is traditional techniques: pantomime, clowning, street, and visual theater.

But the main thing is the unemployed people, desperate to find their place and niche in the world, this fact pushed us to create something new …

The world did not accept us, and we created our own world, and we invite you to this world!

Based on the ancient traditions of beauty

Carries a strong idea of freedom and non-belonging to the social framework of society and any viewer can understand it. Theater for you!
