From June 24 till June 26 – the transcultural theatre festival POSTWEST

From June 24 till June 26 the transcultural theatre festival POSTWEST, organized by Volksbühne theatre in Berlin, will present online new works by theatre makers from Eastern Europe. Among them are 3 pieces by Latvian artists: “Tanya’s Birthday. Berlin” by Mārtiņš Eihe and Arnita Jaunsubrēna (produced by Ģertrūdes ielas teātris), “Cannon Fodder” by Russian director Dmitriy Volkostrelov with Latvian performers Anta Aizupe, Jana Jacuka and Inese Pudža (produced by Ģertrūdes ielas teātris and Katlz) and “Looks Like You’re Going To Die” by Kate Krolle and Valters Sīlis (produced by New Theatre Institute of Latvia and Dirty Deal Teatro).

Originally planned to take place over a period of one week in May 2020, the transcultural theatre festival POSTWEST will now use the virtual space to share ideas across borders during the three days in June. The original twelve productions are now replaced by digital contributions: online live performances, videos on demand, audio performances, meetings with the festival artists, discussions on international collaboration, talk with Baltic theatre makers and a DJ set by legendary Latvian dj Jānis Krauklis.

All festival events online are free of charge and available any time during 24-26 June, except for the live events where starting time is indicated in the schedule.

POSTWEST programme is available on festival website:
