“Carousel Night” – a duo performance by Carousel Company (Ireen Peegel and Jaakko Repola). “Carousel Night” combines physical theatre, circus and live music into a beautiful story, that resonates with viewers own breath, experience and memories.
“Absurd” – a solo performance first demo showing by Estonian artist Anna Kristin Peterson-McCarthy. Anna Kristin is a multitalented contortionist, in “Absurd” she’ll be talking about the western comfort zone and the absurdness of it.
“Confines” – a solo performance by Grete Gross, performed with musicians Johan and Johanna Randvere. Combining visual art, poetry, classical live music and circus, “Confines” tells a story of learning to accept and love oneself.

*Extra: 21:00 “Dicey” by Dan le Man at the new venue/bar Heldeke (EPICIRQ collaborative event)
A performance directed by chance. Starting from the ticket price being decided by a throw of dice, the combination of acts and the duration of the show is all in the hands of fate
