About performance

Performance of dance and live music, which analyzes the topics of beauty, fashion cults, the aim of luxury and demonstrates the vanity which living with “masks” brings forth.

The original choreography, the precise movements of the dancers, the trained, incredibly flexible bodies, the luxurious costumes created by Kristina Čyžiūtė, the play of lights by Vladimir Sherstaboyev, as well as live music of improvisation masters from Kaunas make ‘Kaunas Zoo’ a stunning spectacle
