Almost disembodied as if on Valium and subjected to rigid rules of motion, a procession of dreamlike figures passes by. Shrouded in huge costumes covered in opulent, geometric designs, they appear to float, but violent rumblings emanate from beneath the garments. Forgetting all you have learnt, liberating yourself, letting go – where there are revolts, movement begins. Game changer is about this spirit of freedom and fearlessness, about the urgent energy and dynamism of change and transformation.
The AURA Dance Theatre was founded in 1980 by Birutė Letukaitė and to this day is still headed by famous choreographers. Since it was founded, AURA has played a decisive role in the contemporary Lithuanian dance scene and has trained a large number of professional dancers who are active worldwide. In cooperation with foreign and Lithuanian choreographers and artists of various disciplines, AURA is constantly working on numerous international projects.
