Premiere! Dance theater performance "6th finger"

The last evening of January Ruth Butkus Dance Theatre comma8 invites you to their most recent performance, which is characterized by the creator as a certain style of combining contemporary dance, music and video projections.

So that they could all present to you their latest performance "6th finger". An hour-long performance artist does not call this dance a performance.


Premiere! Dance performance „White on white“

Surreal contemporary dance performance, choreography inspired by Cubism and Suprematism ideas: P. Picasso Cubism genius work "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," Suprematism icon K. Malevich work "White square on a white background. S. Kubrick inspired cinematographic masterpiece "2001: A Space Odyssey" philosophy, and film director C. Nolan futuristic vision of "The Stars".


How a flying man is born

If parents did not yet explain to their little ones how children are born – they are welcome in theatre, dancers will. Of course, it’s easier for dancers; they don’t need to use puzzling words. All they need is a lyrical motion and after a few metaphors – a human is born.

In dance theatre “Dansema” play “Little miracles” that lyrical motion is accompanied with flight. No, not with an air balloon, with this white thing that looks like a hammock. But until the birth of a human in front of children’s eyes will grow flowers, penguin and eagle will hatch out, frogs will dance and caterpillar will become a butterfly.
