The ballet triptych – an evening of three ballets, three glances by three choreographers: our own Martynas Rimeikis, Iván Pérez and currently one of the most famous creators in the world Wayne McGregor. Three perceptions of the relationship between a human being and passing time.

McGregor is a choreographer of exceptional style, whose works have been performed by ballet companies of the Paris Opera, San Francisco, Stuttgart, New York and Australia. Infra was first staged with the English Royal Ballet. Pérez is a former dancer with the Dutch Dance Theatre, who made his choreographic debut with Flesh in 2011. Since then, he has created for the Paris Opera, Moscow and other ballet companies. The triptych will also include Rimeikis’ ballet Days, Minutes, which was first presented in 2019. During the formation of this ballet evening, the main goal was to provide the audience with an opportunity of meeting choreographers whose dance vocabulary is contemporary, different and not yet familiar, so it will be a new and very interesting experience.

Infra observes what is going on underneath a busy city, under the human surface, revealing many portraits of society and relationships. In Flesh, the choreographer questions his own perception of memory, loss, love, and death. Days, Minutes is a work about contemporary human being’s confrontation with an endless flow of information, as well as about how "everything stands still at a frantic speed". These are topics that are currently very important to everyone. It is also crucial to talk about it in the language of dance.\
