Propelled along by a thrilling soundtrack, 72 Days blurs the boundaries between performance, choreography and theatre. With eleven young performers and no dialogue, it creates a spectrum of vibrant but fleeting images that capture diverse aspects of female experience on the stage. A constantly transforming visual exploration that blends images of luxury and desire, of work and wasteful consumerism, of isolation and displacement. How can Gen Z find their place in today’s world without despairing, in the face of crises that threaten their future? The title 72 Days refers both to the length of our journey ­– how long we spent rehearsing – and the daring round-the-world trip taken by American journalist Nelly Bly in 1889 in a successful attempt to break Jules Verne’s fictional record. Nothing in this concert of bodies is ever linear, everything is in flux. On our journey, the world always turns faster than the travellers can keep up with.


72 Days is directed by the Estonian duo Ene-Liis Semper and Tiit Ojasoo. The Thalia Theater previously staged their productions of The Hour When We Knew Nothing of Each Other and Hansel and Gretel.
