The Self Forgotten is more than a performance. It is a performance-mission that spreads the fundamental ideas of the Lithuanian humanist, philosopher, and writer Vydūnas. To educate a nation of conscious and free people, its spiritual culture-science, art, and morality – that was the main goal of the great thinker. Director Jonas Vaitkus considers Vydūnas’ personality to be one of the guiding principles in nowadays’ devaluation of moral values ​​and invites the theater community to march in the direction of love, compassion, conscience, and virtue. Let us become human beings for ourselves – essentially, but not superficially, free people, let us not worship the golden calf, but strive for higher and more perfect humanity. Let us be people in the nation – let us love our homeland, let us work sincerely for it, and be worthy of respect. Let us be human beings in the universe – let us see the world through the nation and contribute to the good of the world. Composer Tomas Kutavičius and scenographer Jonas Arčikauskas turn Vydūnas’ philosophical thought into an impressive mystery – a musical spectacle that combines the shadows of the nation’s history, the echoes of natural elements, and the desire for human improvement.
