Gundega Laiviņa | Artistic Director
Imagine, a choir enters this stage. There are professional singers there. But next to them there are visually impaired athletes, a bunch of kids, humanists and dictators, activists and war victims, plants, Riga inhabitants, Tchaikovsky and artificial intelligence, deaf people, Havel and Milošević. There is you. And there are artists, who appreciate art’s autonomy, do care about the world and dare to take a stand. Close your eyes and listen to the sound of this choir…
It’s the sound of this year’s International festival of contemporary theatre Homo Novus that will take over the city for ten September days and will open the season with a selection of work that is bold and alive, containing great energy and having potential to create a space for conversations, encounters and experiences impossible to discover elsewhere. We are looking forward to welcoming you at the festival!
