How does the age of information and media part us? When does the story become a myth, an opinion turns into faith? How does the information bubble become a fortress? Documentary performance staged in the historical site of Daugavgrīva Fortress reveals contemporary media world full of myths and false facts. It’s an invitation to embark on the journey in different information spaces and experience the complexity of today’s divided world. Fortress continues Krista Burāne’s interest in the phenomena that divide and unite us and involves people from Latvian and Russian communities as co-authors and performers.

Created with the support of British Council in Latvia.
