In December 2015 Jelgava’s Student theatre was participating in international student theatre festival “The Mask 2015” which happened in Tbilisi, Georgia. That was a thrilling trip and a great experience of a guest performance for such a grand production like A. Chekov “The Wood demon” which was staged on 2014 by director Astra Kacena. Several decorations were rebuilt from zero there in Tbilis and searching for materials in local building material market “Eilava”. Some other decorations where borrowed from Tbilisi State Medical Univercity and also a big thank to Nodar Dumbadze Professional State Youth Theater and to director Otar Bagaturia for a kind help and borrowing decorations.
Few brawest from theatre collective took a one day trip to Kazbegi to go into a amazing climb up to Gergeti Trinity Church which is located under Mount Kazbegi – 2170 m above sea level.
Big thanks for organisers of festival “The Mask 2015” for a chance to participate in the festival and we hope to do something like this again in the future.
