The Latvia Project – a piece exploring personal mythology and national identity
It all started with an arcane footnote, a six hundred year-long tragedy, a letter of national introduction, a highly empathic sun goddess and a mythologically-inclined searcher who must make her peace with History.
The Latvia Project is a piece exploring personal mythology and national identity. After learning that all sides of her family resided in Latvia before immigrating to the US, with no records surviving their time there, our protagonist is drawn to the mythology of a new past intertwined with that of Latvia’s emerging future.
