Poetry group Orbita
The Russian Theatre will host events that offer an insight into Russian literature from Estonia as well as Latvia and also the literary culture of Russia. The programme is kicked off on Thursday, 26 May at 6 pm by Orbita, founded in 1999 in Riga as a group of Latvian Russian poets and artists dedicated to a dialogue between creative practices. The group is known for their exciting literary performances, where words are amplified by photographs, painting, music and graphic design. Orbita organised the video and multimedia festival Word in Motion in Riga and promotes the Russian-language poetry of Latvia. The lineup of Orbita at the Russian Theatre is Sergei Timofejev, Artur Punte, Vladimir Svetlov and Semjon Hanin.
The event is in Russian.
