“Republica” is a performance at the Latvian National Theatre that recreates the founding ceremony for a new Republic, and all the preparatory events for the ceremony to take place. The public is heavily involved in the work on the programme of the ceremony: they write poems and songs, create a new flag, decorate the room, write speeches, rehearse various performances to make sure that everything is ready for the new republic to be proclaimed. The actual ceremony is held a couple days later, with everybody coming together to sign the independence proclamation declaration and celebrate. Directed byKvissBummBang.

Project description:

“The Splendours and Miseries of the Schengen Zone” will be a series of performances in October 2014.
