“Contact Improvisation” – Leonardo Lambruschini
Through this workshop we will investigate moments of crisis in the movement, when balance stumbles. The sense of disorientation becomes an occasion to create new opportunities and conditions useful to dance.
“The arrival” – R.Guerreiro, D. Cacciapuoti, O. Kitenge
The workshop is a continuation of the previous day’s session.
“Discovering Me, Discovering You” – Aubrey Clinedinst
This workshop will focus on connecting the physical bodies in the space. It will begin with self-exploration of possible, and maybe movements. Then will move to an exploration of the movement and physicality of others, which in turn should help deepen the self-exploration while simultaneously allowing participants to connect with and appreciate the others in the group.
LECTURES AND PERFORMANCES

“The Welcome: A First Draft Reading” – Alex Schneps
“My brother was murdered when I was 15. If it were possible to take the eagle’s perspective of his entire life, would I be able to look at it as a map, place my finger on a point, and say: That’s where violence comes from?” Crisis is so often the parent of fear and hatred. But it can also be an arbiter of awareness, empathy, generosity of spirit.
“R&J” – Justine Hince & Richard Martinez
Through a series of interviews, research, and personal reflection, “R&J” was created as a means of exploring the topic of immigration through different points of view regardless of time, location, or ethnicity. As a result, the theme of identity continued to surface.
“Surrender to war” – Teatronas
The play “Surrender to war” tries to find connection between the mentality that was dominant in WWII and the one dominant in current day Lithuania. Using Jane’s Elliot’s “Blue eyes-brown eyes” experiment as an inspiration, the play uses propaganda and discrimination methods in a humorous way. The second part of the play searches for a similar way of thought in today’s YOLO generation and finishes with the depiction of a notorious murder in Lithuania – a girl was took from a bus stop, raped and burnt alive, locked in the trunk of a car, in the middle of nowhere, while talking to the police for half an hour. The police couldn’t find her, since the SIM card of her phone was taken out by her rapists.
