VEIDAS / VISAGE enter to the repertoire of The National Kaunas Drama Theatre, oldest professional theatre in Lithuania.
The 20th century French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas is well-known in Europe, as well as the fact that he comes from Kaunas. This exceptional personality died in Paris, France, 90 years after his birth in Kaunas. In 2022, it will become the bridge linking the two European Capitals of Culture: Kaunas and Esch-sur-Alzette. The play Visage/Veidaswas born to honour his memory and philosophy. The first performance in French took place at the Escher Theatre in April and the Lithuanian version is expected at the National Kaunas Drama Theatre on the 11th of November.
Directors- Isabelle Adelus & Suran and Vincent Adelus successfully involved video artist Milosh Luczynski (France/ Poland), musician and composer Rafal Mazur (Poland), and Lithuanian and French actors and philosophers.
