Valga+Valka cityscape performance


A cityscape performance takes you on an adventure through the twin city of Valga and Valka

“One city, two countries” – that’s how Valga’s slogan reads. But how does this border city actually live and breathe?

The Through the City cityscape performance began its journey through the vibrant neighbourhoods of the European Culture Capital of Tartu, with the aim of reaching Estonia’s Southern border by October 2024.

Meanwhile, experts of Latvian applied theatre joined forces with a creative team from Estonia to tell the story of both cities and their inhabitants. This is how the Through the City: Valga+Valka cityscape performance with local residents came to be. The task of the audience is very simple: just wear appropriate clothing to suit the weather and embark on an adventure with our actors to fully experience the uniqueness of Valga+Valka. 

Date: 4, 5, 6, 10, 11 and 12 October 2024

Location: Valga town, Valga county and twin city Valka (Latvia)
