28th of February | black hall | TAKE OVER | Agnė Ramanauskaitė, Paulius Tamolė, Mantas Stabačinskas, Dominykas Vaitiekūnas
The dance and acting professionals Stage Strangers are taking... wedding. Why the wedding? Because it feels, that everything what is related to this inevitably exaggerated event (celebration, ritual, nightmare) “takes over” the everyday life and confuses us as blushing uncle with the bride veil and mustachioed aunt, who toke over the newlyweds seats...
“Takes over” those who once (or more then once) has already survived and those who dreams about the big day. “Takes over” even those, for whom a wedding costume is a work uniform, those living in the kaleidoscope of toasts and fish batter, wishes and dresses fashions, tears and poems, rubbing shoes and balloons-pigeons, guests and relatives, tablecloths and limousines...
19th of February | black hall | BLIND SPOT | Vytis Jankauskas Dance Theater
Choreographer Vytis Jankauskas: „It‘s the twelfth play of our theatre. It is different because the main ideas are communicated not only through dancers’ physical interaction but also by collision of their sight and points of views. This is accomplished by using visualisations that re-transmit the views seen by the dancers at real time. Conflict emerges when the realty is replaced with phantasmagoria, some sort of surreal sights of unknown origin – is it just a flick of imagination, or is it something we did not notice, maybe even chose not to see.“
