Agony is a transitional state in between something or someone dying, soon disappearing, and birth – emerging of an element which is not yet here. The makers of the performance ask the age-old question of what does it mean to be human? Are we just creatures of nature, sufficient in ourselves? Or could it be that humans are destined for more, for notions like holiness or even something that is not existent yet and therefore we don’t know what to call it?
Vytis Jankauskas Dance Company was founded in 1997. In 2008, the company was given the status of a professional dance theatre. The team has established itself as a phenomenon in Lithuanian contemporary dance scene over these 20 years. Vytis’ performances are a consistent exploration of accurate, clean and expressive language of movement. The dance company received two Golden Stage Cross awards: The Drowned Valley was awarded for the best choreography of 2003 and second-highest award in Lithuania for theatre excellence went to Vytis as the best choreographer for his work Vigil in 2008.
