Leigo Järvemuusika 25: balletilavastus ”AJU”

LEIGO LAKE MUSIC 25 and the Ballet Performance AJU
Leigo Lake Music will present the ballet “Aju,” created in collaboration with Estonian neuroscientist Jaan Aru, writer Tõnu Õnnepalu, composers Timo Steiner and Sander Mölder, and choreographer Teet Kask, on August 10, 2024, in celebration of its 25th anniversary. Leigo Lake Music 2024 is part of the main program of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024.

On stage will be the electronic music legend Legowelt (NL) and The Horn Collective, featuring Allan Järve (trumpet), Jason Hunter (trumpet), Allan Kaljaste (alto saxophone), Keio Vutt (tenor saxophone), Johannes Kiik (bass trombone), and Enri Remmelgas (tuba). The dancers performing will be Carlos Campo Vecino (SP), Maria Solei Järvet, Anna-Roberta Lahesoo (Estonian National Ballet), Aleksandra Kantola, Jevgeni Grib (Estonian National Ballet), and the dancers from Tähtvere Dance Centre.

The visual spectacle will be crafted by lighting artist Margus Vaigur, designer-architect Ülar Mark, and Finnish video artist and animator Juho Lähdesmäki. While Leigo is known for its grandiose water and fire shows, the production for the Tartu 2024 European Capital of Culture year will be even more impressive, engaging, and powerful.

The ballet-concert, performed in August, asks what it really is that makes our thoughts work. Who truly moves and guides us? What exactly is this withered cauliflower-like substance that reigns as our king and ruler? What is the brain? This primevally powerful, anciently wise, profoundly sensitive, and autonomous machinery.
