While I still have the illusion, that there is a free, honest and fearless art that can open your eyes, sharpen your mind and move your heart, I belong here.

There are performances that have forever changed my idea about art and what it can do. It’s a kind of experience that I would happily wish for everyone.
Homo Novus discovered the world full of surprises and I want to show that to others, too.

I stand for art that shows the invisible, that is direct and honest and not separated from the reality, but at the same time liberates, inspires and is a tribute to imagination and sense of possibility. Through Homo Novus I am able to meet such art.
There is a community based on love and faith for theatre that brings festival organisers, participants and spectators together. In Latvia, one such community is emerging around Homo Novus, and I want to be a part of it.
The festival brings a fresh breeze of the world into Riga. During this time, I have the chance to see a number of the world’s most current contemporary theatre companies, many of which I have only heard of.
Producer and volunteer coordinator
We all know that it’s easier to work and happier to be in fresh aired room. Every autumn Homo Novus is doing airing process for theatre and art field in Latvia. I am honored to participate in this process.
Homo Novus is a place where you can meet curious minds and hear people’s stories and experiences that encourage the dialogue between stage and reality. Theatre is alive and once every two years Homo Novus is the one to acknowledge that. The reason I’m here is because this festival is not afraid of challenges and is asking questions I want to find answers to.
Homo Novus is not only an encounter with many earnest people but it truly allows you to face yourself too.
Can art create change? I choose to believe it.
Homo Novus is a discovery for me in the Baltic theatre scene. This festival is looking for the new patterns – to perform as well as to observe. I am here for this.
Homo Novus for me is like a mirror that allows you to focus your eyes and look form aside to ourselves, the world, and most importantly, to see ourselves in the world and in the process of interaction.
Homo Novus has given me a chance to experience humanity on a level I haven’t experienced before. It’s impossible not to want to be a part of it.
Homo Novus is a space for finding experiences that crawl under the skin and irritate for a long time. These experiences change, inspire and help to find something new about yourself. That’s why I want to be part of those who makes these experiences come true.
