Multimedia dance performance Both Sides is created as the culmination event of the Latvia’s centenary. Through the music, choreography, scenography, video and light projections, the story of the emergence of Latvia and experience of the last hundred years is told. 2000 m2 large stage is designed in the shape of Latvian flag.
The flag is used not only as a symbol of the nation, but also as a space making element. It creates dance floor for large scenes of groups of dancers and smaller spaces for soloists. The polygonal surface of the scenography works also as a giant video projection screen for Latvian history photo and video interpretations. Source by Didzis Jaunzems Architecture.
