Loreta Juodkaitė Dance Theatre
In Memory Loreta Juodkaitė dives into the depths of human memory revealing layer after layer the forms in a search for one’s true self. Choreography unfolds in a geometric square that represents four points of memory: memorization, storage of memory, reminiscence and forgetting. The stage becomes a ring for human’s fight with himself in attempt to fathom the meaning of his own existence.
