As the weather is getting really cold this week, it is strongly recommended to see some heart-warming art and films. And mainly – don’t forget to dance! Here are some suggestions of things to do and places to visit.
Exhibition “Katja Novitskova. If Only You Could See What I’ve Seen with Your Eyes. Stage 2”
23 Feb – 10 Jun
Kumu Art Museum
The exhibition takes the visitor into the world of living machines, patterns imprisoned in synthetic materials, and two-dimensional sculptures of genetically modified life forms, with the daring typical of the dystopian realm. Katja Novitskova’s oeuvre is located at the crossroads of visual culture, digital technologies and speculative fiction: she is interested in how the rapidly developing planet is increasingly more dependent on various data flows, which intermediate, preserve and alter the environment that surrounds us in visual form. The display is an immersive environment interpreting and looking back at the current day from the future, where the world as we know it is no longer recognizable.
Cinema Dentata # 6: “The Nude Vampire”
27 Feb
Cinema Sõprus
The film is about a young man who falls in love with a beautiful woman being chased by sinister masked figures at night. He tries to track her down and learns she’s being held captive by his father and colleagues who believe she’s a vampire. The Nude Vampire stars Jean Rollin’s son, Olivier Rollin, in other roles we meet twins Catherine and Marie-Pierre Castel, who have also played in several other Rollin’s films.

Oscar 2018 Short Film Nominees

Spoken Word & Music Club
1 Mar
Spoken Word & Music Club is an evening for spoken word performers, poets, storytellers and comedians. There is also a limited number of spots to offer to the musicians. Come and polish your performance skills on our stage – preferably reading something written by yourself! The event is multilingual.
Nordic Disco
Mar 2
Café Sisevete Saatkond
The Nordic climate has never stopped anyone partying – the Nordic Disco is a party in the style of the Vikings, which reaffirms this argument. There will be music that is largely from Scandinavian countries or has Scandinavian touch. MERCA (Merle Jääger), Andreas McKeough, Villu Päärt (Õnne 14) and Ants Siim (Õnne 14) will take care of the music choice.

The Club of Different Rooms
Have you ever found yourself Stuck in the Middle of a Jungle Boogie? Perhaps you’ve driven Across 110th Street in search of a Little Green Bag? When in Lonesome Town, have you received a Strawberry Letter saying Bang Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down? In any case, we’ve put together a band to answer all these questions. Come and see!
