One duet

Urtė Groblytė (Lithuania) and Jean Pierre Bure Gonzalez (Chile)

In this work we are researching the perception and interaction of the bodies as neutral objects, things. Faceless, emotionless figures are thrown into a specific time and space, where they are moving without any goal, having just each other. Touch, attentive listening, adaptation, support – these are the factors which help the figure(s) to move forward. But after some time, all these mechanical actions begin to transform into something new, unknown, something human. As simple as a hug. We are somewhere between humans and objects. Not me, nor he or she, but us.

Embody Me

This performative dance research examines the connection of individual-creator with himself, the surrounding environment and other people in present time using dance as a primary language of communication. The research is an opportunity to freshly approach the surrounding world, environment, which on many occasions is not an easy task, because of the pandemic and the challenges that come with it. Also, it is a way of rethinking, re-establishing and re-embodying my own creative tools of connection, communication and expression.

“My ideas are always changing, always moving around one center, and I am always seeing that center from somewhere else. Hence I will always be accused of inconsistency. But I will no longer be there to hear the accusation.”

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”

T. Merton

“I am one of those creators who loves carrying the idea for a long time. I got interested in Tom Merton’s personality, his personal, creative and spiritual path about two years ago. He wrote about many things, so while thinking “what Merton said about this and that” I’ve developed  “kąMertonas” (ką means “what” in Lithuanian). “kąMertonas” = camerton. Hence the relevance, probably all people, and especially creators, have their own “inner tunes, camertons” according to which they decide external actions, make decisions in everyday life, in creativity, on their spiritual path. Especially in these very interesting times, when the things we considered the norm (dogma) in the household, in the creative work and its dissemination, were shaken up against the background of a pandemic. This is a time when many people start asking a lot of questions and often start looking for answers in the religious sources.” – P. Lisauskas

“Transforman” is an expanded urban dance performance about the relationship between oneself and another person. During the quarantine and forced self-isolation, relationship issues bring out a common human existential problem, especially the normative masculinity, which is normalised in society. In the face of the pandemic, the consequences of the fragility of the daily life and the accompanying insecurity about the future have become particularly apparent. It is often felt in an emotional, psychological and even physical state of human beings. This solo performance depicts the journey of a modern man from the old to the new world for him. It is not only the self-realisation of the young artist, choreographer and dancer Marius in his career, it is also a self-therapy during the creative process and an invitation for others to turn to themselves. The topics and issues addressed in the performance presuppose a target audience of older teenagers and adults, both cultural amateurs and professionals.
