War and peace

5 hours with 2 intermissions

Rimas Tuminas:

We create, explore, comprehend destinies, paradoxes, madness, love, joy, despair. The world that we study and present to the audience is beautiful, aesthetic, theatrical, fragile. And it will be destroyed by the ominous comet, which is already in the sky above.

The theatre is always attracted by the edge of times, by changes and transformation. The performance demands elegance and simplicity. Don’t be afraid to break boundaries and old recipes for right and wrong.

Everything evokes memories. Memory is the “home of the soul”. Everything comes from childhood.

Something has happened to this world and this war. Something wrong.

Logic disappears against the background of war, other laws come to stage. We need another acting. As soon as the viewer predicts your next gesture, the actor becomes unnecessary. Psychological somersaults are very important — in actions, in thoughts. This is your duty: to cause changes in the soul, mood, impulses. The duty of our profession is to reveal the Word, to reveal the Thought.
