MO Museum tickets are valid for this event.

Tickets

Duration: 30 m.

The dance performance-installation Love Chrestomathy  has united artists from different fields and invites us to consider: What is love?

The world around us is full of expressions of love – in songs, movies, art, pop culture. In the performance, recorded in the format of a video, choreographer and dancer Erika Vizbaraitė embodies a Creature who seeks to understand love. The desire to know love becomes the main narrative thread of the performance. The video installation consists of video works displayed on three screens, juxtaposing documentary with elements of dance performances and experimental cinema. The hybrid form of the piece will help to look at the theme of love from different perspectives – both anthropological and emotional. The video installation is shown in a space specially created for the project – a utopian cinema theatre of love.
