* 20.00 - 21.00 ir 22.00 - 23.00 | The project „Pink Cloud Effect“, Simona Biekšaitė | Pocket Hall
The idea of Pink Cloud Effect project aroused in Norway, 2013 spring when three international stage artists - Marit, Kjersti and Simona were preparing their Independent project for spring term in Norwegian Theater Academy. The result was very successful and group decided to work on and develop the project further.
Pink Cloud Effect is the theater piece which draws an ironic look to the certain representatives of the society we live in. Creators are investigating the dystopia and phenomena of crisis that takes an important part in our contemporary lives. They are researching how these crisis of communication and social behavior are arising; if there are any so called ''social norms'' left in general, what are the main reasons that any agreements of social behavior crack so easily. What are the biggest iconic vices, sinful defects of modern social gaming and what consequences they bring through. These topics are represented on the stage in the form of funny, ironic and poetical theater performance.
The show investigates the social paradox, the value of morality, (un)necessity of classical virtues, definitions of the winner and the looser, gender roles, female sexuality, the need for banality and onetimeness.
* 21.00 - 22.00 | Video screening – dance performance „Unprescribed“, presented by Justina Kaminskaitė | Glass Hall
Having formed in Spring 2013 at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama as part of MA Advanced Theatre Practice, The Sun Apparatus worked for an intensive five months developing their first performance: Unprescribed. Sinister, funny and at times absurd, Unprescribed derived from a collective passion to unpick dominant power structures that exist in society.
Unprescribed invites the audience to The Centre to observe treatments targeting those suffering from anxieties and obsessions. Patients are led through a series of exercises designed to aid their journey to a more peaceful existence. As a multinational group of female theatre makers, The Sun Apparatus use everything from song and dance to vegetables to explore the stresses and expectations surrounding institutional control and our current existence. Unprescribed asks whether our anxieties and obsessions can, or even should, be cured.
The show premiered in August at Chelsea Theatre, London and received some fantastic feedback. The Sun Apparatus, a multinational company, is now taking Unprescribed to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014. Justina Kaminskaite, one of the core members of The Sun Apparatus, will present the video recording of the show's premiere.
