Low Air Urban Dance Theatre: Visual dance performance GAME OVER
Authors: Lauryna Liepaitė, Airida Gudaitė ir Laurynas Žakevičius, Povilas Laurinaitis, Adas Gecevičius
Duration 55'
It’s been a century since writer Julio Cortázar created the rules of games with imagination.
Inspired by the author, Urban Dance Theatre Low Air presents an innovative live dance installation which connects both visual and performing arts.
The performance ‘Game Over’ revolves around game perspective, inviting audience to witness the collision of reality and dreams. Spectator feels as in particular situation, considers relationship with others and themselves. Subtle feelings interfere with fiction and magic, while becoming inevitable element of movement and sight.
Cortázar has this magical realism which inspired artists’ imaginations for a while. Writer's stories particularly vivid, and they have become a map for motion and choreography, along with the possible storyline for the dreams and reality.
For this newest piece young Lithuanian theatre professionals have teamed up. ‘Game Over” is a collaboration between set designer Lauryna Liepaitė, lighting designer Povilas Laurinaitis, musician and composer Adas Gecevičius, dancers and choreographers Airida Gudaitė and Laurynas Žakevičius.
On the stage - two dancers, live music, interpretation of the set design, lighting and a touch of Cortázar.

<…> it was enjoyable spread of paradoxical dream images by the choreographers and dancers <…> [H. Šabasevičius, 7md.lt, NR. 3 (1197), 2017-01-20]
Aesthetic, exact, complete. <…> The collective work perhaps is the secret recipe, in which images, sounds and movements constitute a harmonious unity. [Goda Dapšytė, 2017-02-19, dance.lt]
Recommended for those who dreams colourfully and appreciates visual theatre [Goda Dapšytė, 370, 2017 February #51]
No, it wasn’t just a contemporary dance performance.
It was some sort of Gaspar Noe film, some kind of cosmic combination of urban culture, performing arts, contemporary music performed live on stage, perfect bodies, sarcasm, suffocating minimalism, self-exploration and even piles of everything [Dovilė Filmanavičiūtė, 2016-12-28, personal oppinion]
Movement and music told stories and I didn’t need any words. Live music and a minimalistic style perfectly fitted into the set! [Unė Kaunaitė, 2017-01-29, personal oppinion]
Go and enjoy, because this is a high pilotage by the way it catches. This is a game, let yourself to accept it. [Marius Giedraitis, 2017- 01-26, personal oppinion]
