TOPIC: Identity or Death?

 

11412093 10204803060300994 3767258834485422876 o e43fcThe Lithuanian society stands out from other European nations as it demonstrates an significant tendency towards homophobia and ethnic hatred. Such attitudes are shaped by anti-European political powers, which often use hate speech in electoral campaigns. Sometimes such attitudes manifest themselves during national holiday celebrations, where patriotism and racism are presented as identical concepts. Parades of people with nazi or fascist symbols on their clothes march and chant openly racist slogans. The national press regularly reports on violence and lynchings of people who are labelled as Òthe otherÓ. These reports signal that the society has an acute problem, while there is no adequate attempt to reach for mutual understanding and dialogue, which would allow both sides to know each other better. Such reality jeopardizes the idea of Lithuania as a European nation.

The artistic work aims to analyze reasons behind the aggressive political and social discrimination against ethnic and sexual minorities in Lithuania. Finding authentic yet inconvenient personal accounts of people who have to endure social phobias, who have suffered from violence and various forms of discrimination based on their innate characteristics. Personal accounts are even more important because of their roots in a specific time. These accounts are the shared secrets of the present time. The idea of the performance aims to turn this sum of experiences into a production seeking to find the points, which would permit us to destroy the identities and citizenship concepts based on nazism and racism with the patricotic facade. We are willing to ask the question what humanism is in the modern age? Does it exist? How can we create it? Is identity based on differences? Why isnÕt culture a sufficient object of identity for us?
