New Theatre Institute of Latvia (NTIL) is a project based organisation working in the field of contemporary performing arts. Since 1995 NTIL has been organizing the International Festival of Contemporary Theatre Homo Novus, which is the largest performing arts platform in Latvia. NTIL also produces and presents projects and long term collaboration programmes together with local and international partners, strongly believing in the necessity to explore the contemporary performing arts field together with artists and audiences.
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.
