Few people are unfamiliar with the lines from William Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It: “All the world’s a stage / And all the men and women merely players”. This is how it is, our role is to live, to be aware of our life to a larger or smaller extent, and using that awareness, try to hone our role. It also works the other way, the stage is the world and all the actors are merely men and women. This is probably true of all artistic expression, whereas on the one hand, art is a conclusion of the hectic life, a filtered extract, yet on the other hand no extract would be convincing without including everything that we keep encountering in life. However, if in the beginning of everything was the word, in the beginning of art there was an idea. This immediately begs the question: what is the idea behind saying one thing or another? The HeadRead festival is once again inviting some beloved actors to leave the walls of the theatre and verbalise their ideas based on what they have read and performed on the world stage. You will meet three varied theatre figures: actor and producer Maria Peterson (1977), actor Marika Vaarik (1962) and actor Kristo Viiding (1984).
