Sun & Sea

The international music theatre hit and award-winning opera performance

Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė & Lina Lapelytė (LT)

 Imagine a beach – you on it, or better still, watching from above – the burning sun, sunscreen and sweaty palms and legs. Watching from scaffolding above the stage, the audience looks down on a sandy beach, sunbathing vacationers, a mosaic of towels, bright bathing suits, children and toys. Their everyday thoughts, seemingly banal, reveal an underlying anxiety around climate breakdown – reminding us of our own inability to face it.

The internationally acclaimed award-winning opera performance Sun & Sea, by the Lithuanian artists Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė, and Lina Lapelytė, has been celebrated for its humorous, powerful, and timely depiction of urgent contemporary issues.

“People were queueing up in New York and a great many other cities. Visual art critics sang the performance’s praises into the sky. O. discovered the three makers a good while ago. The festival introduced them to the public with the successful supermarket opera Have A Good Day in 2017.” – Joost Heijthuijsen (dramaturg O.)

“Rarely has an environmental message been so subtly, humorously, tellingly conveyed in an artwork.”
