Hide description

Spectators are welcome to change into guests at celebration of Tanya’s birthday. As usually in a big family reunion, the participants inadvertently start to reminisce about well-known as well as carefully hidden and often controversal events in family history. They develop conversations not only about the past but about the future and the community we live in.
This performance is based on Latvian people’s memories, thoughts and reflections about Latvia in the 20th century. It summarizes into a project called "Your memories for the future of Latvia" in collaboration between Goethe-Institut Riga, theatre Ģertrūdes ielas teātris and other partners.
