Carrrmen! in Theatre Vanemuine, choreographed and directed by Ruslan Stepanov. Some of the photos I took, can be found on the official website of the production [/ ] and have been used for a newspaper advertisement.
Since I moved away from Tartu I have really been missing taking photos at the rehearsals and sipping wine with the dancers at the premier receptions.
So this time when I was invited to the rehearsal (even though I had told while ago that I had relocated) I first declined the invitation; but then, in a bit of contemplation and considering my addiction to the ‘Thanks!’ from dancers I packed my stuff the next morning, left work early, had a 2.5h bus ride to Tartu, took the photos, and ran back to the bus station to catch the last bus back to Tallinn. A heck of a quickie, but I think it worked out well – the theatre liked my photos enough to publish them on the official website and they also used some of the photos for a major newsaper advertisement.
Photos taken in Theatre Vanemuine, Tartu, Estonia, on February 15th, 2012.
