About performance

Madness, soft watches… the scandalous surrealist of all.
„The only difference between surrealists and me is that I’m a surrealist.“
Salvador Dali

An artist, sculptor, author, director and entertainment lion, Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Exhibitionists and eccentrics, significant for his surrealistic works. Salvador Dalí was famous for his ability to create the most obscure and intriguing paintings of all times. Colors, perspective and depth, following the artist’s footsteps, leave the real world and awaken the imagination.

The performance is dedicated to the works of this exceptional artist at the Kaunas District Museum.
All performers and creators have been looking for performance inspiration in his works. Music creator and performer Zan Hoffman is reborn in the character of the maestro, and Zigmas Kalesinskas, the director of the Kaunas District Museum, unexpectedly joins him.

The exhibition “The Unexpected Dali” at the Kaunas District Museum consists of 76 exhibits from a private collection of original Salvador Dali works: lithographs, ceramics, bronze, silver, and gold.
The Dali Unexpected highlights the key aspects of the artist’s work.
