The word godos has disappeared from daily Lithuanian vocabulary, however, our experiences and emotions are still alive in it. Performance GODOS reveals the world where the past, the present and the future intertwist, where feminine sensuality, secret mythological creatures and futuristic visions meet.
What is hiding in the fur of a bewitched werewolf? What spells do contemporary hags use? Who brings the luck if we don‘t believe to brownies anymore?
With subtle reference to the Lithuanian myths and legends, the dancers move in patterns, forms and the rhythm that reminds the clattering of weaving looms. A contemporary man sits down at these looms and weaves a band which is as colorful as our life: full of thoughts about who we are today and who we will become tomorrow.
