KITOKS international theater festival for children presents: Tam Teatromusica (Italy) ”I've got a dot in my hands“
Recommended for 2-6 years children | Duration: 35'
With Flavia Bussolotto | live digital creations by Alessandro Martinello | music by Michele Sambin | concept and direction by Flavia Bussolotto
On the left top corner, a little dot
On the right bottom corner, another little dot
And at the centre nothing at all
And nothing at all is a lot, it's so much
At any rate it's much more than something
Through a play of video projections, the elements of painting conjure up worlds which physically touch the actor's body: what does a colour smell like? What does it taste and sound like? ...Biting on a lemon, sour sound, sour colour coming out of the soul and invading space.

KITOKS international theater festival for children presents: Hege Haagenrud (Norway) with the dance and video performance ”The Jury”
Recomended for 7-10 years children | Duration 40'
The Jury opens with a mysterious scene: two dancers performing contemporary dance to classical music with projected black and white scenery as a backdrop.
Suddenly we hear whispering voices: «What are they doing? Why do they do that? I don´t understand anything! This is boring!» Then one child appears on the projection fabric in the background – then another, and another.
The children stop the show. They decide that since they are children, and this is a performance for children, they should not only have their voices heard; they should actually make the performance. For who knows better than a child what a performance for children should be like?
We don’t know in advance if they’re going to succeed, but the group faces many challenges: will they manage to agree on what a good performance should contain; will they succeed in making the ultimate performance for children?

KITOKS international theater festival for children presents: Arts Printing House production - the first puppet performance in Lithuania, which is developed using live recording technique „The Little Match Girl”
Recommended for 6-10 years children | Duration 40’
Director - Šarūnas Datenis | Art director - Imantas Precas | Composers - Severija Janusauškaitė ir Vytautas Leistrumas | Performed by Šarūnas Datenis, Imantas Precas ir Karolis Algimantas Butvidas
The team has chosen the popular H.K. Andersen's fairy tale "The Little Match Girl," which speaks about challenging topics: violence, indifference in society, public issue and death. Topics which usually are hidden from children and parents remain silent, but with the help of the artistic tools performers will raise those sad themes.
Puppets and video projections, together with specially created sound track will bring viewers to the different world – reduced model of the town where the Little Match Girl lives and the performance takes place.
Not as in usual puppet shows, here the spectators can see the details and emotions of every puppet and glance through the windows – live video broadcast will be projected to the screen.
Created at Arts Printing House as a part of the program for the young artists “Open Stage’14”
