This time in a historical space, audience are inviting to watch “Aura” troupe dancer’s performance named “Pneu Pneu Pneu”.
The nearest Lithuanian word to the name of performance – “breathing”. Choreographer believes that breathing unites us with past generations. He thinks that we are immortal and our ancestry is integral part of ourselves.
“This performance – is like tribute to the historical building, also to the people who are already gone and of course, to the ones who will come and see the performance.
