Runar Bruteig Olsen and Anita Bjrkli artits from Bergenis staying four weeks in Vilnius to produce a stage performance. Working together with two local artists, they are presenting the result of international collaboration: welcome to a performance deeply inspired by John Cage, and his composition A Dip in the Lake. This is the second installment in a series of performing art variations on this piece. We travel from city to city, and using the principle of chance operations we record sound and video at random locations which we then put together to form an audiovisual concert performance.

Artists would like, that two local performers will join their residency time and work with them voluntary in the creative proces and perform in the piece. In this case local could mean natives or even just inhabitants of Vilnius. We are interested in meeting any kind of performers, so you might be a dancer, an actor, a musician etc.
