Dawn till Dusk is a unique multidisciplinary performance that fuses together dance and musical interpretations of Estonian mythology, folk calendar traditions, and old archive recordings dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. The show invites everyone to experience a multisensory story of a year in life told through the tales and mystic rituals of the Estonian folk calendar, old and new folklore tunes, and traditions that have shaped modern-day understandings and practices of our cultural identity.

The folk-inspired contemporary performance is directed by two Estonian-born artists Diina Tamm and Valev Laube. It will reveal sides of Estonian culture that, regardless of no longer being celebrated on a daily basis, still influences the cultural legacy and continuous evolution of our cultural identity. The show is performed by four dancers and two to three live musicians.
