    Inese Mičule /theatre director

    lives and works in Latvia


    Inese has graduated State University of Latvia faculty of Law (2004).  At the same time, she studied directing at the Latvian Academy of Culture, graduating with play “Fundamentlist" by famous Finnish playwright Juha Jokkela (2008).

    She received her first award of Latvia’s annual theatre awards "Spēlmaņu nakts" (The Night of Artists) in the category "The Brightest Debut" already in the first year of her independent work. Since 2009 she has been a director at the New Riga Theater, Dailes Theater, National Theater, Mikhail Chekhov Riga Russian Theatre  and Valmiera Drama Theater.

    Already the first productions of Inese Mičule show that the Latvian theater has acquired a director who knows how to work with actors, unleashing in them psychological revelations that they have no idea about. In turn, Inese's handwriting will seem attractive to the audience because she shows the most difficult problems, the most disgusting relationships between people on the stage easily and even playfully. In addition, Inese chooses only high-class literature for staging, although using it quite freely, so the program is almost always written "for motives".

    In 2022 Inese received nomination of Latvia’s annual theatre award "Spēlmaņu nakts"(The Night of Artists) in the category "Best director" and "Best performance/small form".
