Combining the 10 years of the biennial existence simultaneously with the 10 years celebration of Guimarães 2012 – European Capital of Culture. For the full programme please see: contextile.pt
International Festival of Contemporary Theatre Homo Novus in Riga and region presents their programme from the 2nd to 11 th of September. Now it’s 27th year Homo Novus will once again fit comfortably back into theatres and remain in the streets, the villages and beyond. This year’s program invites familiar faces, commissioned works closer to home and continues the festival’s commitment to present works from artists whose practices are not represented locally.
The festival kicks–off at the former Kurtuluş Greek Elementary School with lively interactive activities. The exhibition in the historic building in Kurtuluş accompanies a series of events. The focus of the activities is the cooperation of the artists and their communication and togetherness with the residents of the quarter. Mahalla Festival will take place till the 10th of October, for the programme please see: mahalla.inenart.eu.
