Growing up: 20th Homo Novus theater festival

The 20th annual new theater festival Homo Novus will take place from September 4 to September 10 in Rīga, LSM reports. Foreign guests will be able to experience the festival too, as many of the events transcend linguistic barriers. It coincides with the White Night held in the evening of September 5th.

As the aptly named Homo Novus (Romanspeak for 'New man') is growing up - but it's far from adulthood, organizers say - this year it'll be dedicated to the often challenging experience of putting on years.

But luckily growing up includes not only Woe, as the eponymous play with three teenagers trying to find words for their stories of abuse will show, but also Discovery, as local teenagers will guide adventurous adults through the Zolitūde area in Rīga, sharing stories and experiences during a night walk.

Meanwhile, Elmārs Seņkovs' play Me Me Generation will feature hearty conversations with five high school children of the accordingly named generation.

Other performances and installations will be staged both in theaters as well as in abandoned plants, where you'll be able to experience modern dance and audio-visual installations, such as Voldemārs Johansons' Thirst, which gives a feeling of being in an oceanic storm, though with the benefit of safety.
