There were many ways that Lithuanians all over the world were celebrating the Day of the Restoration of the State of Lithuania. From family dinners, processions to huge concerts in city centers. Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in Latvia was in particularly creative this year.
On the 14th of February, just in time for the Valentine's Day, the arts printing house presents the most romantic performance in the repertoire - the first street dance performance in Lithuania "Feel-Link" created by Airida Gudaitė and Laurynas Žakevičius.
On Saturday, 6th of February in Thingeyri (Iceland) - our Residents Urban Dance Theatre Low Air will present the happening "Sezonas, o ant kalno...?" which is the second part in the series of four exhibitions. The theme of this exhibition is public spaces while making the point that arts can overstep the borders of galleries, museums and cultural centres.
Lithuanian contemporary dance performance for children "Puzzle" (Dansema Dance Theatre) to be shown at Jacksons Lane on the 7th of February and as the part of Mini VAULT festival on 13-14th of February in London.
From the mind of choreographer Birutė Banevičiūtė comes Puzzle, where dancers become the pieces and children are mesmerised by recognisable shapes and vibrant colours. Specially aimed at children aged zero to three years, Puzzle is a joyous and playful show encouraging inquisitiveness and adventure, with opportunities to sing along to enchanting music and join in with the game.
