Festivāls naktī


Festival combines academic music with a rock festival ambiance in a bucolic environment. Everyone can enjoy and discover musical program in a laid-back setting without the posh ambience which is normally typical for academic music events.

Festival Sansusi takes place in Akniste municipality in the back yard of the former Suseja parish house and occupies portions of adjoining forest and harvest sites. The location is about 150 km from Riga, however in a couple of minutes after arrival be ready to smile and dance on air. 



Sansusi opened its residency program in 2015 as a response to the lack of any residency space open for performing artists or academic musicians. Till now residency center has proved itself to be a great creative space for artists fostering interdisciplinary creations.


The residency space is in a rural area of Akniste district - of 3 000 population 150 km from the Capital city Riga. The residency space together with events organised by Sansusi are rare opportunity for local audiences to meet with contemporary creations in performing arts and music. 

Artists are invited to spend 2 to 6 weeks (preferably 1 month)  in the residency to develop the project during summer period June - August. There are multiple residencies occurring concurrently, alongside educational and community outreach programming that is scheduled throughout residencies. It is integral to Sansusi programming that artists live and work together with other Artists-in-Residence as well as the local Akniste community.

There are two halls available for musicians and rehearsals in early stage. The main working space is a globe with wooden constructions of 7 m height and 14 m diameter with full rigging possibilities, fine acoustics and very basic sound and light equipment. 

Applicants for residency program will be selected based on the following criteria:

• Professional background in a performance art medium or music;
• Expressed vision for the project they would like to craft while at residency;
• Interest to work in the environment provided by Sansusi (circular stage or site specific works in the nature); 
• Interest in creating to work and engage in collaboration with other art forms and artists (it does not necessarily mean that the final production has to be collaboration project, but the interdisciplinary and collaboration with other artists in residency need at least to included as a working method during the residency program);
• Willingness to work in a dynamic environment that encourages interaction with other Nordic and Baltic artists;
• Expressed interest in developing new processes when creating performance work;
• Engagement in audience development – artists have to be ready to work with local audience to familiarise it with contemporary art and their working process;
• Applicants that include artists from several fields wanting to work together in order to create interdisciplinary works will be prioritised.
