MagiC Carpets project: SVIDANKA
A meeting place “Svidanka” was created, where audience members, in a remote way, had the chance to meet ten young men, who were born and raised in different parts of Latvia, but now spend some time of their lives together (but separately) in Cēsis Educational Institution for Minors. Currently they share the same physical space, yet have their own coming of age story and unanswered questions about time inside, time outside, time before and after the sentence.
