In the performance Arrhythmias Vytis Jankauskas Dance Company focuses on a topic of social relations and life in society. Main theme is that living in a society invites us or even forces us to carry a load of many different social roles. On one hand they restrict our freedom and we try to get rid of it, but on the other hand we still are a “social animal” and we need to be with others, we need to be loved and to love, so at some point we consciously choose to accept those restrictions and devote ourselves others. Thus, our life in society is a curse and a blessing at the same time.

“This topic is of great interest and importance to me, I deal with it in several performances: the interrelatedness of personal freedom and commitment, humility, serving the other. We perceive freedom as a value itself, but it also can lead to alienation and getting completely rid of the other. We long for closeness but at the same time we fear of limiting our freedom. I think this performance is a development of my previous abstract dance aesthetics but probably in Arrhythmias one can find less dance, more movement and almost one hundred pairs of shoes.”

Choreographer Vytis Jankauskas

Vytis Jankauskas Dance Company was founded in 1997. In 2004 the Company was granted a professional dance company status. During the 18 years of its existence the Vytis Jankauskas Dance Co has established itself as one of best known companies in Lithuanian contemporary dance scene. Its performances are a consistent exploration of accurate, clean and expressive language of movement.

The Company received two Golden Stage Cross awards from Ministry of Culture: dance performance The Drowned Valley was awarded for the best choreography of 2003, and another Lithuanian highest award for the theatre excellence went to Vytis Jankauskas as the best choreographer for his work Vigil (2008).

“Over more than a decade of creative work Vytis Jankauskas has developed a collected dance language, characterized by saturated and energy filled movement and he is one of the most intellectual creators of Lithuanian dance who thinks through the form of his performances as if it were a music score.“
