Etendus on ühes osas ja kestab 1 tund ja 20 minutit

Ajad ja kultuurihoovused vahelduvad, kuid ikka vaevab meid küsimus: mida teha südamega? Südant tuleb kuulata ja kuulda võtta, õpetavad ühed. Südamega tehtud valikud võivad kergesti eksiteele viia, hoiatavad teised. Elu tuleb mõistusega võtta, kinnitavad kolmandad…

Tunded torgivad, nad ülendavad ja alandavad, panevad naerma ja siis korraga nutma, toovad kaasa sulatavat sooja ja kibekülma, armastust ja vihkamist. Kas poleks kergem süda üldse kuhugi ära peita? Sedagi on ikka jälle proovitud teha.

„Südamepeitjate planeet“ on traditsioonilisel eesti muinasjutul põhinev etendus Tartu ülikooli kammerkoori sünnipäevaks, mis seob koorimuusikat ning erinevaid etenduskunstide vorme.

Pilet 13 € müügil Piletilevis ja enne etendust kohapeal.
