ABOUT PERFROMANCE:

Koršunovas looks at the comedy by Moliere from the perspective of modern day: he supplements it with pertinent cultural contexts and allusions to politics of today. The director diagnoses tartuffeisme as a disease caught by our politics, and spread to the vast majority of the public. Thus, the deception of Tartuffe takes place not only inside the content of the play, when Tartuffe makes a fool of Orgon, but also in its form, when the actors are playing with the audience. The green labyrinth created by Vytautas Narbutas creates circumstances for theatrical action that easily turns the idea of the actors and the director into a comedy.

With a tradition spanning for nearly 80 years, Lithuanian National Drama Theatre has been

the home of most prominent local performing arts work as well as artistic discussion about

contemporary world.

Since 2010 the theatre has held its focus on the future of theatre and its openness to new artistic

forms, disciplines and fields. Local as well as guest artists from around the world have been

invited to create here, share their perspectives with our audiences and engage them in an

intense if sometimes provoking dialogue with contemporary world.

In 2018 the theatre announced the first open call for young and emerging artists programme – it will continue to fulfill theatre’s

mission to be a hub for local and international young art, professional education of emerging

artists, as well as stimulate the dynamics of Lithuanian theatre stage by introducing new

phenomena and trends in the field of performative arts.

Our work is seen on tour throughout the country and internationally, including such festivals

as Festival d’Avignon (France), Wuzhen Theatre Festival (China), Kontakt Festival (Poland)

etc.
