The performance is created basing on paintings of a watercolour master Benjaminas Jenčius. The creative team has tried to look at art not visually but though states of mind.  Benjaminas’ works, which are full of penetrating premonitions, balance between stillness and a frenzied storm. During the performance, the actors look for an intangible substance which is able to melt all fears, complexes and pain, and the souls pulsate by the same rhythm if only for a moment.

“Seen” is maybe the only performance in Lithuania for teenage girls. The themes that it touches are very sore and topical for them. The mover and the performer Andra Kavaliauskaitė invites the girls to an intimate dramatic experience. In social network there are millions of photos that illustrate a perfect life and are worthy of magazine covers. “Like share and subscribe” became a kind of modern-day mantra. The play sucks in, reality mingles with illusion and there is an equal sign between the lie and the truth. But a day comes when even hundreds of thousands of followers are worthless and the only wish is not to lie, not to pretend being perfect.

Vlog of the main heroine Ūla is filmed and the new magazine “Seen” is presented during the performance. Do not miss a chance to get acquainted with one of the best Lithuanian vlogers! It may be the chance of a lifetime!

2019 Gold stage cross. Best debut / young artist – Andra Kavaliauskaitė (for social research and creation of a mono performance “SEEN”).
