LITHUANIA: Rues of our grandmothers

Location: Vilnius, Vilnius, Vilnius County LT - 06309 Lithuania

Date: Friday 5th January 2018 at 6pm

Theatre of Senses presents an illuminated polyphonic singing circle for women who survived the wars. This is a ritualistic singing circle and storytelling session, lit by the fire light and projections, about grandmothers and great grandmothers who survived the war to secretly cherish the stories of male heroes, protected their lovers and their memory, dreaming to plant rue plants on the graves of their beloved ones who died fighting or exiled. We feel it is time to honour their strength. We will gather to sing Lithuanian traditional polyphonic songs "sutartinės” and invite people of Vilnius and Kaunas to join the singing and share the stories of their heroes together with “Kadujo” and some other folk groups.
