 The Aseptic Zone or Lithuanian Songs explores the problems of social adaptation and the failures of mutual communication between the individual and the surroundings. Conflicts fueled by territorial, political and gender-related delimitations are explored as well as conflicts arising from contradictions imbedded in the human being himself or herself. In this piece as main motive interlace our and not only our nation past with this day. Time, when we were protected, ruled and demarcated from world around us. We were struggling, fighting, trying to break out, sometimes even surrendered to general beat, yet we were laughing sometimes through tears. We are seeing this day as well, when our live is more and more ruled by forced rules. Huge property inequality is dictating itself live models and again puts us in Zone. Our days Lithuanian songs – it`s not single song any more, it is our accord with each other – our days glee.
