Atelier in Riga

From 5 to 16 September, Riga hosts an international dance project, a creative laboratory that brings together research, reflection, creative tasks and public presentations.

Can the creative process be opened to the spectator? Does it have a place in the city? How to make creative work and its value visible to the public in other ways than by offering performances?

Riga laboratory is a organised in collaboration with Veli Lehtovaara, Maria Silva Ferreira and Latvian choreographers Elīna Lutce, Krišjānis Sants and Kristīne Brīnina.

The first phase of the laboratory will take place in the Sound Garden initiative in collaboration with Free Riga, then it moves to a public space in Riga.

Laboratory results are presentated to the public on Friday, September 9 at 19:00 in Sound Garden and on Thursday 15 September (venue and dates TBC). Free entrance.

The project is part of the [DNA] Departures and arrivals' Latvian activities and is part of the Creative Europe EU programme and supported by the Latvian Ministry of Culture.
