About the performance
Educational horror play with the addition of humour for school-aged children! A reminder of and acquaintance with the characters of Latvian mythology: Lietuvēns, Sumpurnis and Vadātājs.
Lietuvēns, Sumpurnis and Vadātājs – these are ghosts, spirits of dead people, that live in forests, countryside, cities, and even in our homes. It is known from reliable historical sources that these spirits have lived for centuries and are still among us. This play offers an opportunity to find out what they look like, what makes them dangerous and, most importantly, what to do when you encounter them.
Inexplicable, mystical and frightening things can happen during the performance, so we recommend that those under the age of 8 stay at home. We invite those who are afraid to look their fear in the eye. They may not be as big as they seem…
The creative team consists of director Edgars Kaufelds and artist Rūta Briede (costumes) alongside with the provocative artist Kristians Brekte (scenography) and leader of the music group “Dzelzs vilks” Juris Kaukulis (music).
Warning: smoke and aromatic incense smoke are used on the stage!
