RENATE KEERD / Tartu Uus Teater, Kompanii NII

Põletatud väljade hurmaa

Renate Keerd’s production, “The Persimmon of Burnt Fields” (“Põletatud väljade hurmaa”), is of the genre of a physical-psychedelic contemplative tragedy in a comic-poetic form. Or the other way around. It all really depends on your viewpoint.

Põim Kama (Postimees): “In a newspaper I would leave half the page empty and just write in bold: “GO SEE IT YOURSELF!” And at the bottom in an illegible script I would add: “Warning! The play may cause an unusual desire to do a cartwheel, blow soap bubbles or kiss a stranger!”

Katrin Maimik, Andres Maimik (Eesti Ekspress): “The production gives the viewer a chance to smash down their overflowing bucket of inner shit and throw off their
weighty burdens – their position, their duties, the inevitability of life, the anxiety of l language, the dishes piled in the dishwasher, thoughts that lead nowhere, the mother-in-law’s birthday. And just rip of your clothes down to your undies and play along in your mind, roar and romp and racket, wallow, crash and slam, escape from stupid thoughts and the emotional poisonous fumes circulating in the piping – into a pure physical bliss. And then, having twitched yourself empty and cleansed yourself in front of the shrine of love, go back to your home of grey walls and white ceilings, turn on the dishwasher and lie down next to your spouse, without the pillow being soaked from yearning.

Liisi Aibel (Postimees): “Due to its surprising and witty solutions and its unique use of the human physique at play, I recommend “The Persimmon of Burnt Fields” to
everyone who likes to take a little risk when going to the theatre”.

Iiris Viirpalu (Müürileht): “In “The Persimmon of Burnt Fields” one can again see
how using human patterns like Lego men, and creating inventive choreographic
pictures is the undeniable ace up the author’s sleeve. Renate Keerd’s plays are
characterised not only by the performers’ visible sense of danger, but also by a
constant perception of danger from the audience.

Renate Keerd is an Estonian freelance choreographer and director who has performed her works in many international festivals in Europe and Asia.
