Drugajanje 2022 – Agate Bankava, Artūrs Čukurs, Andrejs Jarovojs: THE LOST SONGS
The Lost Songs are songs about the world and insecurity, dreams and reality, the small and the infinite, and the ever so important ability to retain the joy of life of a warm July on a chilly October morning. It is a performance about our readiness to delve deeper, to look at the customary through another’s eyes, to accept that which we do not understand.
A dance performance that goes beyond the visible body, using voice and music as an integral part of corporal expression. Part tap dance, part hip-hop battle, The Lost Songs is a playful ballad for a better future.
The Latvian artistic trio consists of choreographer and dancer Agate Bankava, performer and musician Artūrs Čukurs, and theatre director and dramaturge Andrejs Jarovojs. Together they explore collaborative artistic practices and create works that transcend the boundaries of a particular genre. They explore the ambiguity of today’s reality, combining critical perspectives and childlike playfulness.
The performance is followed by the Audience Council – a discussion with the audience.
