Street theatre performance

Duration: 45′

They came from the not-so-distant past and therefore see the present-day world through somewhat different eyes. They appear to be blissfully naïve and willing to help everyone and in every place. They surprise passers-by with their funny behavior, provoke and make them laugh by creating absurd and surreal situations. Music that is heard from their suitcases is the only clue as to where these two strangers came from. The audience then, becomes part of this performance. A show about migrations, exiles, new comers, a show about us!

Adrian Schvarzstein 
Argentine-born Spanish actor, comedian, clown, circus and theatre director, street theatre director and artist. Since 1989 he has worked with a number of European circus and street theatre companies, collaborated in staging opera, theatre, and television productions. He is the recipient of 2008 MiramirO Award for Kamchatka street theatre project as its director, Ernst Prize of 2010 Bremen street theatre festival, and Zirkólika Award as the best circus director. For twenty years his street theatre performances including GREENMAN, The Bed and DANS have continued to draw crowds of enthusiastic audiences and garner prizes at international festivals around the world. This is probably due to the fact that an audience is always given the leading role in his performances.

Jūratė Širvytė-Rukštelė
Dancer, choreographer, and director, specialising in historical dance and theatre. She has contributed choreographies for several productions of Baroque operas at the Latvian National Opera in Riga, Banchetto Musicale Early Music Festival and the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania in Vilnius, etc. Her collaboration with Adrian Schvarzstein began in 2014, as his assistant in the production of Adriano Banchieri’s madrigal comedy La Barca at the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania.
