Blind spot is a medical term used to describe a spot in the human eye which makes a certain area in our sight invisible, but our imagination fills it in unconsciously by using the details of the surroundings.
The creators of the performance are asking how often do we create such spots that in turn form our view and understanding of the reality, where we only see what we want to, and the aspects of life that are unwanted are eliminated from our vision. As well as how such own-created images of the world influence us and our relation to each other?
„It‘s the twelfth play of our theatre. It is different because the main ideas are communicated not only through dancers’ physical interaction but also by collision of their sight and points of views. This is accomplished by using visualisations that re-transmit the views seen by the dancers“, says Vytis Jankauskas

Vytis Jankauskas Dance Theatre was founded in 1997. In 18 years this Company has established itself as a phenomenon in Lithuanian contemporary dance scene. Its performances are a consistent exploration of accurate, clean and expressive language of movement.
