Until now Latvian actress Guna Zariņa has mainly worked together with directors and ensembles of different repertoire companies. Princesses Don’t Shit is her first independent solo work.
Her motivation behind this creation is described as follows:
‘I wanted to be an actress since I was a child. Most likely I wanted to play beautiful princesses. I have become an actress and for more than 20 years I have been performing very different characters. The time spent in the lockdown forced me to ask the following questions: Who are performers when they don’t perform? Who are performers when nobody is watching them? What is it that I am doing? What can I do? What are my skills? Who am I – a servant to the audience, a joker, a clown, a doctor, an interpreter? Am I allowed to not please? Am I an author? Who directs whom?’

To prevent the spread of Covid-19 please don’t attend the event if you feel sick, recently have travelled abroad, have been in contact with Covid-19 patient or have to self-isolate!
