Conversation with experience counselor Karmen Korjus "...and they lived happily ever after" or why do we sabotage love?

18:00, Postimees tent (Raekoja plats)
Many of us dream of the love stories of the century, elaborated to the smallest detail, waiting for a prince on a white horse or a princess to throw her hair down from a tower. Also on the cinema screen there is a prescribed story, whose dopamine-filled up-and-down roller coaster ride makes you gasp over the love staged by the main characters.

Experience counselor Karmen Korjus discusses what happens when the film runs out, but we also take the illusory love story into real life, influencing the quality, boundaries and patterns of our relationships, where there is no prescribed script, but real people with their own stories and experiences.

The talk will be in Estonian.

Comedy Estonia: stand-up at Tartuff

19:00, Postimees tent (Raekoja plats)
Stand-up is an art form written and performed by one person. However, it only really comes to life when the jokes are presented in front of a real audience and in a room dedicated to comedy. The audience is the first and last judge of good comedy, and Comedy Estonia likes it if you have your own opinion.

Comedy Estonia will conquer the Postimees tent at 7pm, where we are waiting for you all - whether you are a judge or a fan, everyone is welcome.

The stand-up will be in Estonian.
