International Festival of Contemporary Theatre “Homo Novus” is the leading performing arts festival in Latvia and one of the biggest in the Baltic region. Festival takes place in Riga from September 5 till 13, 2019 and introduces audiences to both new and renowned artists that seek ways of expressing their views and opinions about the world and the society. Festival offers a range of performances as well as seminars, workshops and other activities.
The latest production by Miet Warlop is a hypnotic dance ritual, a night of improvised music and poetry reading. Together with two musicians, the artist crosses over the border between corporal, spatial and situational control and the loss thereof.
