Building on the first part of its programme, held at the Riga Circus in September 2018, the second part of Survival Kit 10 continues the festival’s investigation of the concept of outlands, questioning the traditional division of geopolitical and cultural space into centre and periphery and shedding light on the complex construction of identity.
