The special feature of the Art Lab is the synergy of circus arts and music. That is why outstanding Latvian musicians and circus artists from Norway, Latvia and Argentina will help implement the ideas of the composers involved in the project for the final performance. The artists will also lead creative workshops for students of regional music schools and movement arts.

interactions. The idea of challenging the thoughts or mindset of people is

a better inclusive environment for everyone around him, and he tries to achieve
this through his work.
