Lazy Larva is a performance by Eglė Budvytytė channeling multiple entities and ideas bruised by modernity and extractivism through a form of a song. The work explores the potential of rhyme, repetition, sonic alteration of the voice and the proximity of the performer to induce the audience into collectivity and singing.
Medusa: A Tender Version is a performance by Eglė Budvytytė and Tomislav Feller, attempting to reconnect Medusa’s body back to her head. The gaze, the hair, the snakes, the stones, the gods—they all enter the space of a performance in no particular order to celebrate the agency and the voice of a female monster.
