is the time given by the Israeli authorities to evacuate civilians from the houses they are about to bomb. It is certainly an act of civilization, inspired by the NATO under the Roof-knocking directive. Thus it improves -it can be said- the previous conditions of the Palestinian / Israeli conflict, but it is beyond doubt that the cancellation of our past through a sudden bombardment is a shocking and brutal act. What does it mean to lose everything in 5 minutes? To be detached from your beloved life in such a shot of time? And maybe without even understanding why?
The project does not want to be a political investigation into the reasons of a war as complex as devastating but it wants to narrate the perspectives of common people.
What do you do in the 5 minutes before the bombing? Will you escape or stay? What do you take away? What do you think during this time? – questions that international Arts Printing House residents Davide D'antonio
and Carlo Massari
asked Lithuanian artists when asking them to join the project, create their own 5 minutes stories and tell them in any language of performing arts.
(performance art) Greta Bernotaitė
(performance art) and Erika Vizbaraitė
(dance, choreography) joined the residency and together with authors of the project will present their 5 minutes stories in an open rehearsal on 10th of February.
