Circus performance ETERNAL DINNER summer tour 2018 / Big Wolf Company
After travelling the world for years, Estonian contemporary circus artists Grete Gross and Lizeth Wolk have returned to homeland. Touring in smaller and bigger places in Estonia they’re telling the story of a lifetime – of changes, growing old, loneliness and dreams.
“Eternal Dinner” is a bow to traditional circus, a story of being an artist and the glorious splendour, fading as the years go by.
Miss Marta and miss Helmi have met for the past 10 years on a dinner for two, remembering the times of their youth, scaring off the bitter taste of loneliness. As suitable for life-long friends, the love and caring for each other is shown through farce teasing and mocking.
But behind these hunched bodies, too slow legs and wrinkled faces one cannot misread those shining eyes, still seeing the ovations of the audience, still admired, still beautiful…
The never-forgettable songs from Estonian classics (caress the mind) stroke the ears, the circus-like possibility of impossible sharpens the senses and the tea and wine offered during intermission quenches one’s thirst.
