Semper’s and Tiit Ojasoo’s stage production NO43
Filth is a choreographic symphony about the moment when the world falls
apart, filled with the maximum attention and energetic charge of the
persons on stage. This is a stage production that does not let go of
“Five days have passed but I can’t get the picture I’ve seen out of my head,” wrote one critic. “The images were extremely powerful and the stage production was utterly compelling. It is perhaps the most awesome stage production that has ever been staged in Estonia.”
its premiere, this stage production touched off a passionate argument
in the media as well as among the public. Some said that stage
productions like this one should not be staged at all. Others said
they had never before seen such a lofty and poetic stage production.
NO43 Filth has also attracted a great deal of international attention. It has been staged in Paris, Brussels, Hamburg and Venice. Critics have extolled the total commitment of the actors and their unique stage energy. In its beauty, radiance and sacredness, this stage production has been compared to those of Alain Platel. Tours in Europe’s capitals await NO43 Filth in the autumn and winter of 2017.
“In the absence of cultural continuity, collapse had occurred at a frenzied pace. It had taken place with playful ease, without conflicts or any sort of violence or protest. Even actual discussions had not taken place.”
