About the program "Do Not Let The Dog Out - Kind of Night"
In the program, actor Andris Keišs, sometimes violating, sometimes respecting and sometimes merging and breaking down the boundaries of time, will lead the audience to look into the world of the genius personality and poet Ojārs Vācietis. It will be like a meeting of the poet with the audience. During his life, public events often confused Ojārs Vācietis, seemed unnecessary and burdensome, because the most important thing was the intimate, direct meeting between poetry and the reader through the pages of his books. He often missed meetings, thus creating confusion and rumors in society.
The performance is a musical fantasy, overcoming the threshold of eternity, where space is reserved for Vācietis self-irony and laughter in conversations with creative personalities of different times, songs composed by Raimonds Pauls with lyrics by Ojārs Vācietis, and sadness and world pain in poetry. A gathering to speak in public without censorship and framing of the era.
