The Lithuanian group “normalus teatras” presents at KET a physical performance structured around 9 narratives based on Euripides’ “The Trojan Women” and testimonies about the war and its consequences. These narratives analyse the relationship between people and war or destruction. Each story is isolated by a main motif referring to the children’s game of “rock, paper, scissors”, which emphasises the absurdity of war. The performance contains movement, elements of dramatic theatre, text, dance, performance and live music. The actors embody various characters (Julius Caesar, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, War, Madness, Lovers, Soldiers, Cassandra, themselves…).
The performance takes place in a circular stage surrounded by the audience. It is performed by two actors and accompanied by a musician. It is carried out in collaboration with the municipal theatre “Menas” in the city of Panevezys.
