The multidisciplinary performance, "Dawn till Dusk," produced and directed by Estonian-born artists, Diina Tamm and Valev Laube, has announced its first tour dates of 2023.

This awe-inspiring and immersive show explores the cultural roots and traditions of Estonian folklore, incorporating traditional and contemporary dance and music, with the occasional inclusion of digitized Estonian archival instrumental recordings dating back to the early 20th century.

Inspired by the success of the sold-out premiere performance at the New York Estonian House on June 4, 2022, "Dawn till Dusk" offers audiences the chance to experience a year in the life of Estonian culture through mystical rituals and folklore, painting a vivid picture of cultural and societal practices that still shape the cultural legacy of the Estonian people. The tour kickstarts in Lantana, Florida on February 25, as part of the EV 105 Celebration organized by the Estonian National Association of South Florida, followed by a performance in Rockville, Maryland on March 4 as part of the 60th Anniversary of the Washington Estonian Society and 50th Anniversary of Pillerkaar event, organized by the Washington Estonian Society.

The show features four talented dancers and two musicians, led by Diina Tamm (dance, choreography, and stage direction) and Valev Laube (violin, music direction, and design), with Victoria Vikström (dance), Pavel Kurylo (dance), Corry J. Ethridge (dance), Joe Tucker (keyboard, percussions) and Charlie Rauh (guitar) rounding out the cast. "Dawn till Dusk" takes audiences on a journey through a year in life, as told through folk calendar traditions, and delves into the tales of mystic rituals and folklore, illuminating the relationship between Estonian mythology and the natural world.
