    Experimental dance performance STATE OF FLOW: IDENTITY
    Choreographer and creative inspirator: Agata Pečiul (in collaboration with dancers) | consultant Jevgenij Tichonov| Dancers: Greta Lukošiūtė, Karolina Auglytė, Gintarė Šulčiūtė, Giedrė Stankevičiūtė, Aura Skulskytė | costume designer Ugnė Smalskytė | Music played by: Jevgenij „DJ RusDawg“ Sizych | Lighting designer: Dainius Urbonis duration 60' | organiser VšĮ Atvira meno erdvė, Freedom of Movement - FOM   Have you ever experienced the moment when the past and future cease to exist? When space and time suddenly lose their meaning? When “right here, right now“ becomes the only thing that matters? This is the moment that sets you free. Fully embrace the presence, remove the barrier between you and the outer world, and let the FLOW be your guide. Flow is everywhere. In music. Movement. Body. Nature. Life. State of flow is an experimental dance performance – nothing like you’ve ever seen before. It highlights the search of identity and personal growth during all 4 stages of flow: struggle stage, release stage, state of flow, and recovery stage. This performance is both the result and process at the same time. All dancers on stage seek to reveal the consciousness of movement, discover the new possibilities of action, reflect upon their feelings and share experience with everyone around. This experimental dance gracefully embodies a variety of different dancing styles: hiphop, contemporary, popping, vogue. Each move is real, honest and as raw as it gets. Become part of the story about someone who got fed up with hectic lifestyle and stress. Who became tired of constant society’s pressure to look and act a certain way. Meet the person who never gives up searching. Someone who gets lost in order to be found. Someone who (accidentally!) seems to be just like you. arts printing house | black hall 10-12 euros | tickets at the box offices of Tiketa (buy online)

    dance performance B AND B DIALOGUE
    Choreographers Greta Grinevičiūtė, Agnietė Lisičkinaitė duration 60‘ Like the opening of a fairy-tale, “B&B Dialogue” began when a Cork sweet maker, a shoe-maker and a furniture-maker met two dancers from Vilnius. It was a funny and personal homage to the craftspeople and disappearing trades of Cork and Vilnius – where them and us became we, as different generations and ways of life came into contact with each other. During the developing process the two dancers/choreographers Agnietė Lisičkinaitė and Greta Grinevičiūtė created two characters and called them B&B. Unfortunately, they didn’t expect that those two blond girls would take over their creation. B&B started to live their own independent lives and this stage piece became unpredictable. No more boundaries between choreographers and performers are left. Only one question still bugs young choreographers – do we need masks in order not to be afraid to be who we truly are? • Dance makers Agnietė Lisičkinaitė and Greta Grinevičiūtė are actively performing artists in professional Lithuanian dance scene where they have been first seen in 2012 and a year later they both performed in their preceptor Aira Naginevičiūtės’ work “Hora lupus/Hour of the wolf”. The two dancers are invited to perform in works of well-known Lithuanian choreographers, as well as they are always involved in their individual artistic projects.
