Somewhere on the edge of the world stands the painfully nostalgic Bistro Beyond - serving the last hopes with a cup of teardrops, still leaving an endless appetite for more...

This performance is a darkly entertaining story, a visit to the far future with the fascination and beauty of the past. There where borders between animals and humans are constantly stretched, where we hear the melancholy melodies of far-away domras and untuned radio-stations - there is the very last Bistro. There bizarre beings are scraping their living and scraps of humour from the left-outs of society, trading it for a dinner in the forgotten Bistro Beyond. After all, who is at the dinner and who is the dinner?

Bistro Beyond is reaching the ideal of the theatre - music, set design, actors’ movements and idea create together a magic universe, which you watch, mouth open, sometimes afraid to breathe and wake up from the spell.”

"Bistro Beyond” premiered in February 2012 and was performed at Piip ja Tuut Mängumaja, a tiny clown-theatre in Tallinn, and at Genialistide Klubi, Tartu. In August 2013, we had the fortune to perform it again in Tartu as part of the Estonian Theater Festival Draama, to sold-out audiences and great response. Many told us, "you should present this show again, and soon". After some thought, and with no concrete offers from promoters to produce it, we decided to take it into our own hands and ourselves produce another run of shows, from February 26 - March 2 in Tallinn and March 4&5 in Tartu, 2014

This is where you can help- as we're producing it ourselves and we have such an international group, there are costs we can't quite expect to cover with ticket sales alone. With your generous donation, you can help us make this happen.

Thank you!
