Murray Schisgal  one part performance about a man and a woman in a small space A woman and a man, meeting daily at the same place of work. In the traditional work, from eight in the morning to five in the evening, in a small work room, where constant clutter of monotonous typewriter sounds while performing the one and same action – typing of potential buyers' names, surnames and addresses on promotional postcards – can be heard. This is how Sylvia Peyton and Paul Canningham spend their lives in one firm. A woman and a man desperately trying to discuss in their daily dialogues about the things that worry, upset and even hurt them. They indiscriminately believe that they will never have to do what they do not want, and that this daily "machine" printing on postcards is only a temporary work for them. "The Typists" is a performance about the desire to live differently, about the desire to at least briefly escape from the shell of everyday life routine and at the same time about the great fear of changing something in a settled life. This is a play about ambitions that are greater than a man himself.

Have you ever wondered how theatrical performance is born? Do you think it’s actors repeating their lines over and over like mantras in the deepest nooks of their theatre behind closed doors, the director speaking in an authoritative tone, costumes made ready as if by magic, and a pensive composer working on the soundtrack? Nothing of the kind. Three actors, one playwright, one table and three chairs—welcome to the process of producing a play. Where does art come from? What makes creative work and death alike? What are the stories theatre tells and how? Critics in art websites, viewers in the theatre cloakroom, directors interviewed in shows on culture would say “its stories cover anything and everything”. Yet our play is about nothing. The play About Nothing, written and directed by Linas Jurkštas, is a comic, absurd and rowdy caricature of art, a self-ironic spotlight on creators. In a single evening, viewers see the actors in action from their first reading of the play to the day of the premiere; they see both the making-of of a performance and a story about a young man who has challenged Death, with a hint of the Italian commedia dell’arte. About Nothing is a peek at what happens behind the scenes with the creative process this time presented right there on the stage. It is a playful provocation and a deft balancing act where nonsense meets existential questions. Director, playwright: Linas Jurkštas Cast: Danas Kamarauskas, Jurgis Marčėnas, Gabrielius Zapalskis, Birutė Belada Tauterytė/Viola Klimčiauskaitė. Scenography: Ramunė Skrebūnaitė Music: Gabrielius Zapalskis Runtime: 2 hours 15 minutes (1 interval) Premiere: 25 January 2019 N-12 Thanks to UAB Aloritus for translating the description into English!

Different generations are differently familiar with the movie “Nut bread“, which is laying down in the classical film and theatre foundation. “Vilniaus Keistuolių Teatras“ gives a fresh breath of air for this classical movie.  The director of the play Aidas Giniotis and different generation actors from “Vilniaus Keistuolių Teatras“ created open, a little bit painful, hilarious and extremely sad play for senior students, youth and for all the old generation who remembers the taste of the carefree days of life. This play is created by a short story, written by Saulius Šaltenis. The play tells a story about young boy from a small last century town, Andrius Šatas and his beloved Liuka. Their bright love story is obscured by their parents’ disagreement. The nut bread from Andrius uncle‘s Boleskovas hands – is a symbol of the most beautiful days of a happy childhood. For the main character, this symbol was the landmark of the conscious, carefree life that has lost its illusions.  The “Nut bread“, played by “Vilniaus Keistuolių Teatras“ actors, breaks free from nostalgic aesthetics of a romanticized village and turns to a more sophisticated picture of Lithuania cities in the seventies. Even if the young generation is limited to Soviet-era frames, they are already filled with the rhythm of European culture and music. Uncoincidentally the soundtrack of the play was chosen to be “The Beatles“, which dictated probably this period‘s the most reviling rhythm and spirit of Andrius Šatas. Every maturing person undergoes the inner drama, which is painted with the bright sadness and subtle irony of “Nut bread“. This play is dedicated for young people, which lives in ever-changing, a little bit cynical and pure love-denial environment, where sometimes it takes so long to allow yourself to say “I am not alone!“. Author: the play was created based on Saulius Šaltenis short story “Nut bread” Director: Aidas Giniotis Length: 1 h 55 min Language: Lithuanian Thanks to UAB Aloritus for translating the description into English!

Single-action mono act performance for those who became just like the Brown-nose Mono act performance "DIAGNOSIS: COMPLETE BROWN-NOSE" (or - "I came, I saw, I couldn't") was directed according to director and writer Vytautas V. Landsbergis first book of stories and anecdotes, "Stories of Brown-nose", which was awarded as the best book for children of that year, but do not be fooled - this play is suitable for adults as well. Are you never in risk of becoming just like the Brown-nose? What are the signs of it, how can it be diagnosed, treated, etc. The answer to these and many other questions is sought by Brown-nose, who travells through many epochs - from the prehistoric times of Vytė Nemunėlis, through Soviet times, occupation, exile to the very present day. "The Brown-nose is the kind of slight craze that I wish that every person gets. This is the type of childhood where adults can stay without any fears. As a matter of fact, it is a point of contact with your childhood, which you keep carrying with you, even though sometimes it gets deeply hidden, sunk and buried inside. However, it should never be forgotten what was so great about your childhood, what supported you, because it then supports you in the simple everyday life as an adult," says one of the Brown-nose actors of the performance - Dalius Skamarakas. "The axe matched head," the Brown-nose folk proverb says. We hope that this performance will meet your expectations, needs and will open a new page in the pollinated bookshelf of your childhood.   Director - Vytautas V.

On the stage of the Keistuolių theatre is a new work that looks back on a young personality that is only starting to enter the adult life which is often forgotten in theatres. Keistuolių theatre actors Jurgis Marčėnas, Giedrius Kiela and Danas Kamarauskas, together with the youngest generation of theatre actors Džiugas Širvys, Matas Pranskevičius, Aistė Šeštokaitė and Lukas Auksoraitis, are on stage exploring the intricate story of two young brothers who open an unexpected and awkward view of the world in which we grow and mature to the audience. The provocative, awkward and world-acclaimed Irish playwright Martin McDonagh became familiar to the audience of Keistuolių theatre back in 2007 with Aidas Giniotis' performance "The Cripple of Inishmaan". Now McDonagh returns to this stage in the form of the two-part crime story "The Pillowman" which is directed by Ieva Stundžytė. The performance opens with an interrogation process that paints a grotesque and contradictory story of the brothers Katurjan (Matas Pranskevičius) and Michal (Džiugas Širvys/Danas Kamarauskas). The works of the writer Katurjan - nightmarish short stories full of brutal imagination and masterful puzzles - turn out to have unlimited freedom and impact; they are powerful tools capable of revenge and death. "The Pillowman" is the story of two brothers and their complex experiences, which led to tragic, grotesque outcomes. It is an awkward, sharp and critical performance about creativity, freedom of speech, a dysfunctional family and the iron clutches of a dictatorial society. The work draws the viewer out of the comfort zone, raising questions about at first glance indisputable values and ethical norms. Are parents responsible for what their children become? Is the author responsible for the impact of his work on the person who sees or reads it? These questions will not be answered by the "Pillow", but after raising them, he will not allow you to calm down long after theatre doors are closed. The diverse creative team of the performance openly, originally and playfully immerses itself in the nightmarish stories of the "The Pillowman". The music of the performance is written by members of WhaleSounds, a band experimenting with atmospheric sounds, and their leader Gabrielius Zapalskis, who has composed music for theatre and film projects. Performance choreographer - dance teacher and creator Eglė Kančauskaitė, who actively creates with the youngest generation of Keistuolių theatre. Laura Luišaitytė, who has been creating for many years in many Lithuanian theatres, takes care of the set design and costumes, while Darius Malinauskas, the artist of Keistuolių theatre, holds the play of light and shadow firmly in his hands.

Director Olga Lapina, who has received two golden stage awards, and Keistuolių theatre actors, through the tales and short stories of Miloš Macourek, open the door to an extremely fragile and sensitive world - the first steps of a child in school experienced in a new and unfamiliar system. Czech writer, author of legendary tales about Boniface's holiday and a hippopotamus that is afraid of vaccinations, M. Macourek testifies in his works that the privilege and fundamental right of the child is his fantasy - a natural creative force. The writer's texts from children's literature are distinguished by unconventional images, playfully absurd story decisions and characters unexpected to the adult eye, which with the performance "The Long Break" move to the stage of Keistuolių theatre. On stage, the revived works are linked by one theme - arrival to the first grade. What happens to a young person who experiences a 180 degree change of the environment and system where he has lived under until now? The creative team of the performance is looking for the answer to this question using abstract space, aesthetics and searching for childish logic, language and connection of relationships. "The most valuable thing we discovered in M. Macourek creativity is the huge respect for the child's inner world. The performance reminds the audience that being in the school system cannot destroy the curious, inventive, imaginative nature of a young person - after all, when he comes to school, the child experiences a constant conflict between how he should look and behave and how he imagines himself. With the "The Long Break" we continue M. Macourek tradition and perform a sort of theatrical study of the inner world of the child," director Lapina shared her thoughts. "The Long Break" is a performance not only for pupils that are discussed on the stage; this is a piece for all the people, parents and teachers around them, revealing an imaginative world that is constantly changing in the eyes and thoughts of the child - completely different from what we see through the eyes of an adult. At the same time, it is a performance for anyone who has at least once experienced what it means to step out of their safe and somewhat fantastic world into a big, otherworldly and frightening school life.
