What is the importance of history to a person? How does the past shape our identity? International project, which includes cooperation of three choreographers (Birutė Letukaitė, Pia Holden and Anne Ekenes), tries to search for the meaning of human existence. Godos, which are considered as Lithuanian womanliness narrative, take one of the starting points in the dance performance.
Godos is a primordial point, which has promoted several different approaches towards the world of today. The inspiration of Lithuanian part has become the elemental past and its reflections in today’s human being. Meanwhile, Norwegian artists focus on the search for the primordial nature of women full of nostalgic longing for the past.
What do Godos mean today and how do we experience Godos? What narrative of history do we create for future generations?
