Kerli Kõiv: „The island of Saaremaa is one of my favorite places in Estonia. This is where every part of the forest and each wave of the sea is full of magic. And this is why I am thrilled to bring my fairy tale land to Kuressaare Maritime Festival. Each of my performances is unique and this time I will be looking for inspiration from the old Estonian sea mythology. See you in Kuressaare!“
Odd news about the fire of the Sun falling into a sacred lake spread quickly. It all happened on an island, an island far-far away. Where could it be? When Pytheas from Massalia arrived here 4th century BC, it was clear, this was the island he’d been looking for. He made it to Thule. (inspired by the works of Lennart Meri)
The magic of waves, the spirit of time, the inherited force. Saaremaa, Ultima Thule.
