Gundega Laiviņa

Artistic director

While I still have the illusion, that there is a free, honest and fearless art that can open your eyes, sharpen your mind and move your heart, I belong here.

Homo Novus discovered the world full of surprises and I want to show that to others, too.

Laura Stašāne

Producer, head of communication

There are performances that have forever changed my idea about art and what it can do. It’s a kind of experience that I would happily wish for everyone.

Liene Jurgelāne

Imagine 2020 producer

I stand for art that shows the invisible, that is direct and honest and not separated from the reality, but at the same time liberates, inspires and is a tribute to imagination and sense of possibility. Through Homo Novus I am able to meet such art.

Katrīna Dūka

Magic Carpets producer

Homo Novus is a space for finding experiences that crawl under the skin and irritate for a long time. These experiences change, inspire and help to find something new about yourself. That’s why I want to be part of those who makes these experiences come true.

Homo Novus is a festival that keeps surprising every time. For those who are not afraid, this is a chance to change their habitual way of thinking.

I can only imagine what a person might feel after watching every performance of this festival. Once I was very close it. I highly recommend it.

Beatrise Zaķe

Volunteer Coordinator

A few years ago Homo Novus showed me that theatre is a open never ending process. Now I wish also for others to engage and explore this process.

Jānis Liniņš

Technical team

There is a community based on love and faith for theatre that brings festival organisers, participants and spectators together. In Latvia, one such community is emerging around Homo Novus, and I want to be a part of it.

Kārlis Lapiņš

Technical team

The festival brings a fresh breeze of the world into Riga. During this time, I have the chance to see a number of the world’s most current contemporary theatre companies, many of which I have only heard of.

Miks Valers

Technical team

HN has always been for me about different theatre. A kind that steps out of the usual box. So it was a logical next step for me to get out of the usual spectator’s seat and get behind the stage, to “the insides” of the performance.
