Performance "Tristan & Isolde" by Dr.GoraParasit at art fair ArtVilnius'20
This year at the 11th international contemporary art fair ArtVilnius'20, which took place on 2–4 October at the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre „Litexpo“, the Lewben Art Foundation presented Dr.GoraParasit with the performance-live sculpture ‘Tristan & Isolde’.
The live installation which can be viewed both as a performance and as a piece of visual art, presents the Liebestod aria performed together with Jekaterina Bezumenko, LMTA student and soprano vocalist (teacher Ausra Liutkute), and DJ Zentralmuster from Berlin with their electronic orchestral music arrangement, accompanied by Vilnius Academy of Arts students Upė Pilitauskaitė, Andrėja Puskunigytė, Aušrinė Leitaitė ir Lukas Narvilas, playwright Erik Zielke and assistant sculpture / set designer Emilija Paciunaite.
In her exclusive stage language, Dr. GoraParasit questions death for love and emphasizes the staged nature of death, allowing Tristan to become the smith of his own life and death / the director of the final act of his life.
