Dance for an object and child (LT)
Lithuania is marking a historic milestone in 2023 – the 700th anniversary of Vilnius. Let’s start preparing and come together to create a majestic celebration that reflects the spirit of the city. The news of this anniversary will spread all around the world. Our present for Latvia - performance created by Vilnius City theatre MMLAB.
The play is about the relationship with an idea of a child, with a dance, and the creative process when one is in quest of a meaning, of truthfulness, as well as attempts to survive the daily routine of creation and life.
The authors of the play raise questions about unquestionable norms in regards to having children, expecting them, giving birth, as well as not wanting or not being able to have children. All of us one way or another face the issue of having a child, and no matter what is our decision we feel obliged to justify it. The performance reflects ideas that are important for young adults in contemporary society. How to create, reach all the career goals and at the same time live under the social pressure related to family decisions?
