Too unreal to be made up
In this installation project of music-dance-video – one part dance performance „The red shoes“ actors are looking individual access to their role. They create homicidal characters, which experience both naive puerility and brutal cruelty. „ It is an interpretation, of bright, white and very feminine fairy-tale, the horrible ending of which is relevant to any of us”, – this is how Gytis Ivanauskas, the director, choreographer and actor of this show, presents it.
The sense of aesthetics and whiteness is created in the show by large cubes which were manufactured specially for this show, and also by complicated video-installations, in which we can see an allusion to the childhood.
In the fifth „Gytis Ivanauskas theatre“ performance, acting and dancing well-known actors: Edita Uzaite, Judita Zareckaite, Brigita Urbietyte, Evaldas Taujanskis, Naglis Bierancas and the choreographer, director of the performance – Gytis Ivanauskas.
„The red shoes“ – is a fairy-tale about a heartsease, who was given an opportunity to indulge in luxury, but not for long. Maybe it is because of her naivety or maybe because of her great happiness when she received the red shoes the story turns to unexpected ending. „The girl tried to beg for mercy, but before she said any word, the red shoes carried her away. While dancing, she flew over the thorn bushes, streams, hedges and hurtle forward, dancing all the time, till she appeared next to her former home, where she saw procession of the funeral.“ – says H. C. Andersen’s fairy-tale.
