Jaan Tooming 75

Stage director and actor Jaan Tooming was the initiator and figurehead of the Estonian theatre innovation which started in the end of the 1960s. Theatre had an exceptionally important role in society during the Soviet occupation, when the freedom of speech was severely restricted, because the language of theatre was difficult to censor. His rich in symbols productions with philosophical, but at the same time affectionate and warm-hearted messages enjoyed exceptional success and were talked about long after their run had ended. The exhibition devoted to Tooming’s 75th birthday offered diverse insights into his creative life, showing programmes, posters, published criticism and reviews of performances and productions, papers by theatre historians and overviews of theatre history.
