One late morning, a famous athlete appeared in the arena. He wasn’t the same. Ha was ragged by a disease for years and there was not much left. He coughed and tried to even his wrinkled sports jacket with old worn letters. Then he looked around the empty stadium which had meant so much to him. He heard the sound of fanfare, noise of the excited audience and passionate screams of the coach. It was the end of November, the air was humid. “Have you noticed,” said the famous athlete quietly “how beautiful the Tallinn Old Town is?” Lauri Lagle’s performance “The Inevitability Of Living At The Same Time” begins from the moment when everything is ending. People have gathered and are preparing for something. But new horizons are not opening soon. Just as our lives, it is not a tale but moments of lived lives – and of those still to come. The performance is a paraphrase of a title of a painting by Peeter Mudist. Premiered on the 28th of November 2019 at Von Krahl theatre.
The performance is without a break. One cigaret is smoked on stage during the performance.
