Tiit Ojasoo

Born in 1977, Tiit Ojasoo studied at the Estonian Academy for Music and Theatre until 2000, before he took his first job as a director at the Estonian Drama Theatre. In 2004 he founded and directed the Theatre NO99 in Tallinn together with visual artist and set designer Ene-Liis Semper. Here Ojasoo and Semper operate as an artistic duo, developing numerous productions together. They work on writers such as William Shakespeare and Bernard-Marie Koltès as well as contemporary material from the likes of Martin McDonagh and Sarah Kane. Furthermore, their wide-ranging artistic spectrum includes musicals, a rock opera and many of their own projects, which have attracted international attention. Works such as ‘Heiße estnische Jungs’ and ‘Wie man dem toten Hasen die Bilder erklärt’ have seen them invited to festivals in Germany, Russia, Holland, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Finland, Lithuania and Slovakia. ‘Wie man dem toten Hasen die Bilder erklärt’ could also be seen at Thalia during the Lessingtage in January 2011. His production of ‘Fuck your ego!’ in the 2010/11 season, also staged with Ene-Liis Semper, is the duo’s first production at Thalia in Gaußstraße, followed by the production of ‘Hanumans Reise nach Lolland’, premiered at Thalia in Gauß during the 13/14 season, another collaboration between the artistic duo of Semper/Ojasoo. ´Die Stunde da wir nichts voneinander wußten" of Peter Handke in April 2015 is the duo´s first work on the main stage of Thalia.
