“WE ARE IMMORTAL – I know it sounds like a joke.” J.C.

Low Air Vilnius city dance theatre presents an innovative live dance installation which became a full dance film.

The performance and a film revolving around the game perspective, inviting the audience to witness the collision of reality and dreams. The spectator feels as in particular situation, considers the relationship with others and themselves. Subtle feelings interfere with fiction and magic while becoming an inevitable element of movement and view.

Cortázar has this magical realism which inspired artists’ imagination for a long time. Writer’s stories particularly vivid, and they have become a map for our motion and choreography, along with the possible storyline for the dream and reality.

REVIEWS on live performance

* It was the enjoyable spread of paradoxical dream images by the choreographers and
dancers. H. Šabasevičius, 7md.lt, NR. 3 (1197), 2017-01-20

* Aesthetic, exact, complete. The collective work perhaps is the secret recipe, in which images, sound, and movements constitute a harmonious unity. Goda Dapšytė, 2017-02-19, dance.lt
* No, it wasn’t just a contemporary dance performance.
It was some sort of Gaspar Noe film, some kind of cosmic combination of urban culture, performing arts, contemporary music performed live on stage, perfect bodies, sarcasm, suffocating minimalism, self-exploration, and even piles of everything. Dovilė Filmanavičiūtė, 2016-12-28, TV producer, influencer.

*That was amazing – so much passion and sensitivity, and body virtuosity, and humour, and irony. It’s like my dream about Rene Magritte paintings, computer games and rave parties all in one, Julio Cortázar is also here as promised. Olia Zhuk, Creative director at Dovzhenko Centre (Ukraine), 2017.

* Delirious choreographies capable of highlighting the encroachment between dream and reality, but also the irreducible tension between the individual and the outside world. The dance becomes an epileptic convulsion in an instant, all of which is cadenced by the tenacious and powerful sound of a drum machine played like a rock concert, between grotesque and dramatic tones. Alessandro Alfieri, Persinsala Teatro, 2018-05-12.

* The project is perfectly orchestrated, a subtle and innovative interaction between dance, music, and relationship with the public. Game Over is a performance that combines with force evocative and irony the fatigue of the bodies and the power of dreams, it plunges us into the obsessions of our life and into the world of a great writer. The game begins, the game ends continuously, the rules are built together. Federico Betta, Altroquotidiano, 2018-05-10.

* Two dancers, carefully dressed, in three squares of light – everything takes place, running, drowning… Musical accompaniment begins with ancient trumpet sounds and ends with a quiet waltz. In the middle, everything is possible. Both in dance and in music. Figures from the Surrealistic world of Cortasar become real. Dan Ben Ari, photographer, Tel Aviv, May 2018.
