The annual electronic media festival "Pikslaverk" in Reykjavik will run from May 22 to May 24 this year; this year the festival's focus is on science. The festival opens with creative workshops and lectures "Melting on the Ice", which will analyse the melting of glaciers and the effect thereof on energy resources. Artists Raitis and Rasa Šmits represent Latvia at the festival.
May 20-23, 87 critics, producers and directors from 16 countries will converge on Riga for the annual showcase of the newest productions in Latvia, including ones in Liepāja and Valmiera, and such small independent companies as "Dirty Deal Teatro" and the Ģertrūdes Street Theater.
May 25th is the date, the National Opera House the place, and a 25th birthday the occasion for a gala concert marking the glorious years career of what once specifically was the Riga High School Nr.1 Youth Choir. Composing special pieces for "Kamēr..." are three gentlemen, and the result will be heard May 25 - Ēriks Ešenvalds, Raimonds Tiguls and Gabriel Jackson.
