SIXTH (Latvia)
01.09. 20:00, Festival Centre | Free entry

A work-in-progress by the contemporary dance association SIXTH, who work according to the principles of consensus and without a leader. Instead of exploring the destructive effects of gambling and alcohol consumption associated with casinos, SIXTH focuses on the playfulness and vitality of this space. They use children’s games to create the movement material and structure of the performance.
