How does the age of information and media part us? When does the story become a myth, an opinion turns into faith? How does the information bubble become a fortress? Documentary performance staged in the historical site of Daugavgrīva Fortress reveals contemporary media world full of myths and false facts. It’s an invitation to embark on the journey in different information spaces and experience the complexity of today’s divided world. Fortress continues Krista Burāne’s interest in the phenomena that divide and unite communities and involves people from Latvian and Russian communities as co-authors and performers.
The International Festival of Contemporary Theatre Homo Novus is the leading performing arts festival in Latvia and one of the biggest in the Baltic region. It takes place in Riga and introduces audiences to both new and renowned artists that seek ways of expressing their views and opinions about the world and the society.
