Latvian Theatre Showcase presents a selection of performances made in Latvia. LiVe invites international professionals to engage with digital presentations, performances, pitches, talks and a selection of works from Riga theaters.
The 2021 LiVe: Latvian Theatre Showcase is organized by the New Theatre Institute of Latvia (NTIL) in cooperation with the Latvian Theatre Labour Association (LTDS), the Latvian branch of the International Association of Theatre Critics (AICT/IACT) and Latvian theatres, companies and individual artists.
The Showcase and the digital platform LiVe are financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia and the target programme “KultūrELPA” of the State Culture Capital Foundation.
Every year when the Latvian Theatre Showcase takes place, a special edition of the newspaper “Specifically Latvian” is created in cooperation with performing arts critics and authors reflecting on current events in Latvian performing arts and providing an in-depth introduction to the Latvian theater and dance scene and processes. The newspaper is also available in the electronic format, thus creating an internationally available informative archive about Latvian theater shows.
