Mara Pavula – the new head of Rīgas cirks


The Latvian Ministry of Culture has appointed Māra Pāvula, the former head of Riga Circus School (Rīgas Cirka Skola), and its current head of strategic development, as the director of the Rīgas cirks. Pavula starts her duties on January 3rd.

Mara Pavula shared that her relationship with the circus is very personal. “I see the circus not only as an art, but also as a value system that cherishes diversity, cooperation, growth, and courage. I feel very honored and moved that I have been entrusted to lead the Rīgas cirks, and in the next five years I plan to do my best to achieve the largest circle of society through art.”

We, Rigas cirks team, express our gratitude to Pavula’s predecessor, Liene Pērkone. Liene had a significant role in preparing and starting the reconstruction of the historic circus building and making Rīgas cirks the co-host of the international circus network Baltic Nordic Circus Network (BNCN).
