A new play titled “Äralennuväli” (The Emigration Airport), which examines those who have left the country but not in a physical sense, opened in Tartu on Friday.

“There are many people who do not leave but are internal immigrants, those who are cut off from the government and the nation. Or they feel that they are surplus to requirement. They live in Estonia, but feel that they are actually somewhere else,” stage director Ivar Põllu told ETV on Friday.

The play asks questions about the disappearance of the Estonian language, nationality and gene, as many of those who have moved abroad are, in an abstract sense, more Estonian than those who have stayed.

Emigration in a physical sense has been cited by many top-level politicians as the biggest problem currently facing Estonia. Over 10,000 people migrated from Estonia last year, while a recent poll by TNS Emor found that one in eight employees are considering leaving.
