This year PREMIERE, a platform meant for up and coming choreographers, introduces the debut productions by Sanghoon Lee and Grėtė Šmitaitė. PREMIERE is an international programme that offers professional platform to choreographers for their first full-length dance performance.
Grėtė Šmitaitė 'What Do I Cry For?'
‘What Do I Cry For?’ takes the pulse of sorrow. It displays a puzzle of choices, distances and dives between a person and their feelings.
Personal and collective stories or imaginings of pain, longing and solitude are the terrain for the performance.
Sanghoon Lee 'It Is Still Impossible...'
‘It is Still Impossible to Exist at Two Places at Once’ experiments to be aware of the gap in between two opposites; right and left, inside and outside, action and reaction, or 0 and 1 in mathematical binary system. Body does not stay on the one side of concept. It exists by the feelings of shaking, judgment about what is right and wrong, identity in society and identity as oneself
