Summer theatre: “Kaksismaa / Kaksoismaa” on Estonian National Museum’s open-air stage “Kaksismaa” is a political utopia and a poetical-musical summer theatre presented by young theatre artists from Finland and Estonia. At the end of 19th and in the beginning of 20th century, many Estonian politicians dreamed of uniting Estonia and Finland similarly to Austro-Hungarian Empire. The united country would have had common head of state and army, but separate parliaments. Estonian artists and bohemians, like the poet Lydia Koidula in her poem “Finnish Bridge”, were also dreaming of state-driven collaboration with Finland.  “Kaksismaa” explores, how and on which basis are nationalities and countries formed. What does the word “country” mean to our generation? What is the destiny of nation-states and today’s Europe? What is different, what is similar in the Finnish and Estonian people?  Estonian, Finnish and English are all spoken in the performance, but there is no need to understand all three of them.
