Festival of Hope 1 / 27 April 2020

Video premiere: Insomniacathon at Prima Vista

Premiere of the video compilationof the first ever 24-hour cultural event Insomniacathon in Estonia during Prima Vista festival 2019.

The video, shot in May 2019 offers a selection of moments from the poetry and music show Collaboration of the Unexpected - the highlight of the 24-hour cultural program in Tartu Literature House during Tartu Interantional Literary Festival Prima Vista. This improvisational and collaborational performance by poets and musicians from several countries was an unforgettable experience and we hope this short video carries the creative and inspiring spirit of this past event, offering warmth, comfort and the hope of artists being able to come together and collaborate again in the future. If the situation allows it, Tartu International Literature Festival Prima Vista will present Insomniacathon Vol2 in November 2020.
