National Kaunas Drama Theatre and theatre Porte Parole
Performance The Assembly Kaunas is a joint creative project of the Kaunas National Drama Theatre and the documentary theatre Porte Parole (Canada). By using theatrical means, the project aims at creating a democratic dialogue on topics greatly dividing our society. During the creative process of the performance, the creative team invited 4 strangers with different ideological views to a dinner throughout which they discussed the topics greatly polarising our society. Their conversation was recorded. In the performance, you will see the re-enacted discussion: the actors will play real people, who have participated; their language will be authentic and not edited. The audience will be given an opportunity to continue the initiated discussion.
An assembly is a gathering of people in one place in order to compare their ideological differences. The Assembly Kaunas provides an opportunity to hear out others and to be heard. This documentary performance focuses on ordinary people, helps them to voice their opinions, and to communicate with those seeing everything in a different light. The Assembly Kaunas is an aspiration to restore our faith in the possibility of change.
