PD_Embodied Vilnius’ identity

I am Vilnius, I move in time and space. My landscape, architecture and traditions are changing with many layers of history that evolve over time. All elements intertwine in the relationship based on the cause-effect connection. Vilnius reflecting cultural imaginations of of place and time; and engender rootedness and connection, belonging and identity, emplacement and embodiment. You move through my streets, we meet in the dreams, I am in your memories and stories. I am Vilnius. Vilnius is me.

"Embodied Vilnius’ identity" is an artistic research initiated by Performative Design Association (PDA) in collaboration with Children and Youth Center of the Capital (SVJC) and dance collective “Gama”.
