Last April, students from the Vanalinna Hariduskolleegium in Tallinn came to present a play, written in french, called “Le deuxième tilleul à gauche” (the second linden tree to the left) from a Romanian artist Matei Visniec. the staging was done by an estonian artist Lembit Peterson and adapted to suit the requirements of the 7th european festival of french-speaking high school theatre in Saint Malo (France).
Happy to have won for the second time the first prize in this festival, the young actors came to perform at the estonian embassy in Paris. The video will show you a short extract from their play. They impressed us with their acting in french. Certainly a good exercise to learn this difficult language. I’m not sure many french students would be capable of doing the same…. in estonian !
