Saturday Jan 18 18:00–21:00       Laisvės 71
Sombras (Shadows) is an experiment directed by Gintaras Varnas and is a reflection on the meaning of theater and its value. It encouradges a discussion about theater art and the artist that is seeking an unattainable truth. This dramaturgic collage consists of texts by Spanish poet and playwright F.G. Lorca, as well as excerpts from the play “Six Characters in Search of an Author” by Italian playwright Luigi Pirandello. This play is an intellectual journey into the theater world, where magic and everyday life, reality and mysticism, real world and illusion, lies and truth, life and death intertwine. The theater is the realm of props, cardboard castles, fake landscapes, dolls and masks. The theater is a safe haven from life’s cataclysms, assault and revolutions. The theater is a place of authentic tragedies and battles. The theater is a labyrinth of darkness where only the shadows of the characters wander, waiting in anticipation for their next incarnation. The theater is a space that gives a poetic meaning to love, crime, war. The theater gives metaphysics to physics. The theater is what seduces, frightens, and causes boredom for us. The theater is a knife, half submerged in a dream, but cutting all the way through to the depths of existence.
