LAF. ŽITLUHINA AND KAUKULIS. DANCE PREMIERE AT LIEPĀJAS METALURGS

1. OCTOBER 13.00



Saturday
2022


For the first time in its history, the Liepāja Art Forum will breathe the life of art into the former legendary factory Liepājas Metalurgs. For this event, the brilliant choreographer and dancer Olga Žitluhina and the magnetic musician from the band Dzelzs vilks, Juris Kaukulis, have created a musically choreographed piece that embodies the previously restricted part of the industrial site in a new light.

The vast territory will be an ever-changing and moving stage that will allow the attendees to take a closer look at the abandoned chimneys of black metallurgy and listen to powerful vibrations of the electric guitar, exuberant chirping of the flute, and delicate steps of dancers in the chain shop. 

With their contemporary dance performance Simply Good, the artists, choreography students of the Latvian Academy of Culture, and flautist Liene Dobičina, will invite the audience to see the good in themselves and in their surroundings. The creators reveal that the performance will capture the moment: ‘... when you don't have to be anywhere, when you have time to gaze at the sky, to listen inwards, when the eyes of a loved one are looking at you and seeing you...’

During the performance and afterwards, attendees will be able to explore the territory of the former Liepājas Metalurgs factory.
