2000 sqm large stage is designed in the shape of Latvian flag.

The flag is used not only as a symbol of the nation, but also as a space making element. It creates dance floor for large scenes of groups of dancers and smaller spaces for soloists.

The polygonal surface of the scenography works also as a giant video projection screen for Latvian history photo and video interpretations.
