Announcing NEW NOW LIVE - A Retrospective:
5 Festivals, 5 Artists, 5 Disciplines

The NEW NOW Festival celebrated its fifth edition this year. To commemorate this coming of age the NEW NOW team caught up with festival alumni to create a retrospective featuring interviews with five artists from the very first edition, held in Vilnius in 2009. 

We interviewed five international artists, one from each discipline featured in the LIVE Festival -Visual Arts, Design, Theatre, Music, and Film - to see where they are now, how their art has developed in the interim, what impact the festival has had on their work, how the crisis has affected their practice as well as the cultural climate in their country, and much more.

For the next five weeks we will release an interview with a different artist every Wednesday, starting the Wednesday of July 17th, on the NEW NOW Website at www.neunow.com/retro.

To offer a glimpse of what's to come we are delighted to announce that the following artists will be featured:

+Susanne Irene Fjørtoft (Theatre, Norway)

+Koji Wakayama (Design, Sweden)

+Mindaugas Bačkus (Music, Lithuania)

+Bogdan Girbovan (Visual Arts, Romania)

+Robbe Vervaeke (Film, Belgium)

Visit www.neunow.com/retro every Wednesday from
17 July to 14 August, and join us in marking the five festival milestone!
