The Soft Power

Elza Marta Ruža | Matīss Kaža

Performance, one act

Premiere – 9th November, 2023


In a prestigious European theatre festival the opening event is supposed to be a performance about conquerer Tamerlane directed by a famous Russian director. Shortly before the premiere a new theater artist Tina from Eastern Europe joins the creative team. Tina is sure that this sudden chance will lift her career on a new level. When a community of Ukrainian artists begin to fight against the premiere of this performance, Tina is put in a maze of uncomfortable truth and difficult choices, she discovers – no one is really what he says he is.

The performance reveals the world of art and individual responsibility in the conditions of war.
