DAUGHTER OF THE SUN: The Latvia Project opens this week as part of an evening called LATVIA/LATVIA.
Originally simply, The Latvia Project, DAUGHTER OF THE SUN, is the latest incarnation of this piece developed by warner|shaw over the last several years with support from LMCC, The Paul Artist Residency at Indiana University, and Dixon Place.
DAUGHTER OF THE SUN: The Latvia Project is an intersection of mythology, history and identity. A Lecturer boldly goes off syllabus only to have her own hero, the sun goddess Saule, intervene, and school her on cultural appropriation, self-reliance, and what it means to write your own origin story. Using the History of Latvia, the Dainas of Saule and the family artifacts that link us to our own past, DAUGHTER OF THE SUN asks us to confront the question “where are you from?”
