What does it mean – “Born in a lucky shirt”?
To live a fulfilled life according to time, nature and oneself. To honour your nation and family values. To trust the world, to keep an open heart and mind in every situation life offers you, and to return to this world as a brand new.
Musical production introduces both - new musical pieces and original arrangements of Latvian folk songs and existing dance choreographies. In a contemporary way it will compare a human life to a nature changing its seasons. Main values of the play are the meaning behind generations, faith in laws of nature and time, wisdom imprinted in folk songs, that are revealed to the audience by the main characters and Gods of Latvian folklore.
One of the central symbols of the play is a tree which lives through all four seasons just like a human does through their life: spring – birth, childhood; summer – youth; autumn – maturity; winter – old age. The other symbol portrayed is Latvian mythological Goddess Laima - creator of human destiny.

In the darkest corner
