Performance Emotional Trilogy by Austėja Vilkaitytė is presented at 8pm on January 13 for the last time in the frame of the exhibition "Slow Schools. JCDecaux Award".
In the piece Emotional Trilogy by Austėja Vilkaitytė combines the genres of dance, performance and installation. In the performance cycle, the structure of which is loosely based on the antique drama theatre, the artist uses images and motives from Lithuanian ethnography and contemporary popular culture. Personages from different time-spaces meet in the piece: Eglė the Queen of Serpents, Antigone, the warrior princess Xena, „Ruki Vverh” and others. The performance cycle ‘Emotional Trilogy’ is extended into the continuously changing installation, which gains new features and functions in time. The artist comments about the static conception of time in the epic genre and the dominance of male personages in it – by using emotional and erotic “logics” she turns the usual power relationships upside-down.
