Support Homo Novus!

‘Give me better medicine, please’, a patient of the Psychoneurological hospital dedicates a poem to Latvian health minister. He dreams about publishing a poetry book and saves money from his pension. He has been isolated for years and has found his cure in writing. While he writes the world around him boils up; diseases and evil spread with no cure.
Durational performance One More Chance invites to clear your head, wash your heart and sweat your bitterness away.

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!
