Birute Letukaite, artistic director of AURA dance theatre from Kaunas invited me for the second time for a collaboration. This time for a dance piece for the opening of the international dance festival in Kaunas september 30.
The “costumes” I designed and made for dance/theatre group AURA’s new piece are abstract constructions, made from textiles in bright colours or textiles with graphic designs. I do not emphasize the shapes of the dancer’s bodies, but on the contrary dehumanize them into sculptures.
The music is composed by Antanas, and played by Kaunas Symphony Orchestra (40 musicians).
