Inspired in self-isolation (7) posted: 29/06/2020

With Covid-19 lockdowns worldwide and health authorities urging people to self-isolate and practice social distancing on a massive scale as part of an enormous effort to #FlattenTheCurve of this global pandemic we are reaching out to industry friends, colleagues, associates, partners, etc., and asking them to share their #StayHome and #QuarantineandChill activities with us during this extraordinary time.

Inspired in self-isolation: Andres Sarv Andres is head of lighting at Vanemuine Theatre in Estonia - the oldest theatre in Estonia, founded in Tartu in 1870 it is the only three-genre theatre in the region, staging music theatre (operas, operettas and musicals), dance theatre (classical ballet and modern dance) and drama. The theatre has three buildings and employs close to 400 people. Andres also works as a lighting designer for rental company E&T Light - designing for concerts, exhibitions, and installations.

Robe: Where are you right now?

Andres: Right now, I am in my country home in Tartumaa, Estonia.

Robe: How are you spending time whilst isolating / on lockdown?

Andres: Doing work in the garden and repairing my house! Barbecuing and going to the sauna on the weekends with my family.

Robe: What is the most creative thing you're able to do whilst in isolation?

Andres: Working on my wife's studio lighting!

Also, I have been trying to learn new lighting desks online and discovering new fixtures and their abilities from Robe.

Robe: Are you looking after anyone else during the Covid-19 crisis? Like neighbours or others in the family?

Andres: I am part of a 5-person family, and we are checking on other relatives as well.

Robe: Has anyone particularly inspired you since this crisis started?

Andres: My wife and kids.

Robe: What has been your favourite book / movie / Netflix or TV series / viral video

Games / music?

Andres: I have stuck with my usual Midsomer Murders (popular detective drama set in modern-day England) and watching its new season. I have also enjoyed the various livestreams from Estonian musicians and artists.

Robe: What is the first thing you'd like to do when we are through this crisis?

Andres: I m excited to do the lighting for T nis M gi's (Estonian singer, guitarist, composer, actor and one of the most influential names in Estonian rock music of the past 40 years) new concerts, visit a pub and a restaurant and start up my weekly basketball training with friends again.

Robe: Own question / answer / message of solidarity or something you would like to say?

Andres: I hope we will come out of this smarter and stronger!

Inspired in self-isolation: Hannah Talbot Hannah is a lighting technician working on rock and pop shows which she's been doing since finishing her apprenticeship at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall venue, which is where she first heard about the NRG - Next Robe Generation - programme.

Robe: Where are you right now?

Hannah: I am currently spending isolation in my flat in Wimbledon, South-West London.

Robe: What are you doing to fill the time whilst isolating / on lockdown?

Hannah: I am studying Open University courses in environmental science and issues surrounding global warming and setting up an online business. But if I'm honest Im also binge-watching Only Fools and Horses!! (The popular UK sitcom set in Peckham, south-east London, was originally broadcast on BBC One between 1981 and 1991).

Robe: What's the most creative thing you're able to do in isolation?

Hannah: I have been painting and catching up on my tailoring skills, its been years since I sewed anything properly.

Robe: Are you looking after anyone else during the Covid-19 crisis?

Hannah: Im not looking after anyone else, but I AM looking after myself as I'm in a high risk' category.

Robe: Has anyone inspired you since this started?

Hannah: I like to watch some European shows and films and I have recently been watching some Russian shows so, I've now been inspired to begin learning Russian!

Robe: Favourite book / movie / Netflix series / viral video

Hannah: Im loving Killing Eve right now (British black comedy spy drama / thriller TV series, produced in the United Kingdom for BBC America) and I cant wait for series 3 to come out.

Robe: What's the first thing you'd like to do when we are through it?

Hannah: Well firstly I cant wait to leave the house as I have been isolating longer than most people as I'm high risk, but mainly I just want to get back to work as I cant stand sitting still for too long!

Robe: Own question / answer / message of solidarity or something you'd like to say?

Hannah: I think its important to remember each other currently because most of us are aware of the mental health issues a lot of the people in the industry face. I think if we can do anything at this time, then it should be to just check on someone who may need a friend right now. Lets all go back into the industry together.

Inspired in self-isolation: Yevgeniy Ganzburg Russian LD Yevgeniy believes that he is very lucky! He works with many completely different and interesting directors, set designers and actors in a variety of theaters in different cities lighting dramas, operas, and even puppet shows. He thinks that now when we see how fragile the world actually is, it is very clear what is and was important.

Yevgeniy Ganzburg

Robe: Where are you right now?

Yevgeniy: I am in Pushkin, near St. Petersburg. I can see an old stone wall and a park from my window. I always wanted to spend more time with my son and now it has happened.

Robe: What are you doing to fill the time whilst isolating / on lockdown
