Excerpt view from Rage and Folklore performance

Rage and Folklore

Microphone, costume, video and audio projection, smoke machine

During the show, the performer sings traditional Lithuanian folklore song called Ant marių krantelio (On the Shore of the Lagoon in English). 

This performance brings attention to the traditional meaning of marriage for women and the duties that come within which are implied on very young women and children. The meaning of marriage for young women was often understood as an event of grief, which is something the performance taps into.

The performer is dressed in a white ghost costume. This costume is chosen both to resemble a bridal covering and a child’s costume. The performer sings the song to a microphone in a show-like setting for the audience and dances around while the smoke machine fills the room with fog.
