1. Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers

    Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers is an expression used in the Latvian language when describing a fictional place of wealth and happiness. Growing up in Latvia where society shifted from the communist past towards capitalist future, I am wondering how the idea of Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers is represented in these regimes and how narratives of past and present are created, while directed and hosted within the Urban Stage.

  5. Private Within Communal

    Audio guided and narrated performance where spectators become actors. Starting with creating floor plans from all of the places where I ever lived, I wonder how larger scale politics have influenced my personal paths. How much am I guided and where lies the choice? Narrative constructed around property law, its changes during the time and looking into my personal and my family history.
