Performance Lab XIV: Justina Kaminskaitė and Jean-Lorin Sterian

The Performance LAB series by Museum of impossible Forms aims to provide a space on a regular basis for experimental performance and artists. As a lab site, the series is dedicated to test and prototype ideas, strategies, and new languages for the representation of ideas and identities in the public sphere.

Justina Kaminskaitė

"This time, I neither want to explain nor describe my performance, in order to leave space for the spectators' input and interpretation. I put my everyday questions into it, and will try to see how much they resonate with others." 

"travelling light" is her first solo performance piece.
