A lecture performance
by Arnita Jaunsubrēna
Dear Bremen, we know each other already so long. More than 800 years. You send me gifts and try to teach me. Sometimes you worry that I go the wrong direction, but lately I have the feeling I am strong enought to give you some lessons. Will you listen to me?
Your friend Riga
Let‘s admit, relationships are hard. We as humans know it. You get older, have a lot of work, family… Relationships change, stagnate or end. It is a whole science to maintaine a friendship.
In the lecture-performance Deutsch-lettische Freundschaft (German-latvian friendship) the artist Arnita Jaunsubrēna tries to investigate the friendship between german city Bremen and latvian city Riga. Because – it is remarkable to sustain a friendship for more than 800 years!
