International contemporary circus festival NEW CIRCUS WEEKEND’18 | 4-9 September, 2018
Arts Printing House residents Fheel Conceps invites you to become a part of a contemporary circus and VR (virtual reality) project!
Ordinary Circus Girl is a final result of the project, where through a VR headset, you as the viewer will become one of the circus performers in the short movie. For the team to fulfill their VR vision, they need some help form the audience - to watch areal acrobatics sketches from different points of view: from the usual seats, from the ground and anywhere else around the action
Fheel Concepts presents an open rehearsal where you will be watching short sketches performed by two rope acrobats in exchange for your honest and very important opinion about different points of viewing the performance and feeling the space. It will be a big input in the process of creating a VR circus experience.
During the presentation the team will tell you more about the project, ideas, this unique relationship between contemporary circus and virtual reality and also, answer your questions! The action will take place at our Black Hall and anyone is welcome to enter free of charge.
Meet the Fheel Concepts:
*This residency is a part of Arts Printing House international residency program Print Art On Stage and CIRCollaborative Tools project, financed by Erasmus+, uniting 8 partner contemporary circus organizations, where circus creators and performers are introduced to digital tools that can help them manage their work, while organizations can share their experiences and strengthen European contemporary circus community.

All fans of contemporary performing arts can mark 5th-10th of September on their calendars – Arts Printing House has prepared an exciting programme of New Circus Weekend’17 festival. Not only has it performances in various circus genres and venues, but a special celebration as well. Together with one of the strongest contemporary circus country – Finland – festival will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary of Independence. Finnish Embassy in Vilnius is partnering up with Finnish Institute in Estonia and helping Arts Printing House to present one of the most interesting circus performers from Finland this year.
Before the beginning of the performance, when the lights go out , lots of tiny screens light up in the dark. ‘I must switch my phone off’ we remember. Contemporary dance company from North Finland called TaikaBox suggests to discard this rule and use our mobile phones to create a special bond between the audience and the performers. Participants of the Arts Printing House’ international residency program Print Art On Stage will perform in Vilnius with their dance and live technology show Please Switch On, where the audience will be able to take part in a creative process of the show. On 26th and 27th of May with a help of a special technology system every audience member will be able to make their personal stories into a dance, vote for music they want to hear and lights they prefer. Finns will perform together with Lithuanian dancers and part of their residency dedicate to workshops with school students. One of the creators of the Taika Box – choreographer and dancer Tanja Råman answered our questions about the fusion of theater and technology.
