About Kosmos Theatre

KOSMOS THEATRE is an independent company which focuses on visual theatre by combining classical theatre forms with achievements and technologies of contemporary science. Established in 2012 the creative team moved to seek for new artistic forms. By gathering young artists and bringing them creative platforms involving education the company started to push the limits in order to become an centre of contemporary art experiments in Lithuania. Stepping in a new decade, from 2020 company is moving by a new KOSMOS manifesto created by artistic Director Žilvinas Vingelis and producer Darius Vizbaras.

1) Multi-genre Theatre. Mystical visual musical theatre rises of combining live music, drama, puppetry, modern dance and visual media.
2) Analyse a dreamy reality. Unconsciousness, dreams, memories, virtual reality, augmented reality are the only measures of theatres reality. Theatre researches these pseudo realities, visual characters and relevant manipulation tools to represent characteristics of our dreamy reality.
3) Science and art is the content. Creation of scripts involves contemporary science achievements and scientific topicality. Create teams involving scientists and artists whom can lead scientific researches in becoming material for performances.
4) Science and art is the form. Combine contemporary approaches (3d animation, virtual reality ect.) with classical theatre genders. Research new forms and combinations, create theatrical installations.
5) Theatre in public spaces. Actively transform spaces to become theatre. From festivals and fairs to performances and visual installations. By establishing performances in various cultural spaces, prioritise advertisement by street art principles.

KOSMOS THEATRE MANIFESTO IN PRODUCTIONS:
  1. To create performances which dramaturgy is created based on scientific, art critic and cultural researches. Quantum physics, neuroscience, theoretical physics, or the humanities answer the same questions as art.
  2. To connect different theatre genders and acting forms or even refuse monotonic style of performances. Utilize a multi-genre aesthetic to express character change and thematic polemics, thus making the work more open to interpretation.
  3. To respond sensitively not only to social or political topics, but to their profound coexistence with esoteric and unseen by us. Never rely solely on psychology and logical motivation, or simply on the surface of life.
  4. To develop themes inspired by modern science, to give them a metaphysical basis, to look for similarities in differences and connectivity between heterogeneous disciplines. Performances based solely on psychological or socio-political explorations are merely a visual representation of the fictitious answers already found to the eternal questions. The purpose of art is not to rely on literary truths and generalisations, but rather to deal with such complex issues that art alone can approach.
  5. Do not follow blind logic, look for theatrical paradoxes and reject everything domestic, compress reality to surreality, seek complex artistic solutions.
  6. To look for new models of the world and human functioning, fantastic rules, to create new causal relationships that allow us to look at the same problems from a different angle. To boldly disclose the very law of operation of the problem under consideration without attempting to replicate ordinary domestic reality.
  7. Always question the notions of reality and illusion, looking for identity in differences. Develop dualistic and ambivalent concepts rather than moralising and direct concepts.
  8. The performance must testify to the fact that a stage image that obeys unrealistic or unseen rules of life can create the illusion of real and live life and lead to recognition. Also, to question the monotony, illusion and absurdity of our real and real lives, to focus on broad topics.
  9. Theatre has always been socially active, but politics and commitment have always been imposed on the country. While free, theatre has a natural right not to engage in it.
  10. The theatre is designed to reduce conflicts between people's ethnic, professional, political and social groups, and therefore should choose topics that connect rather than divide people.
A person can be incredibly strong when they do not take themselves too seriously. The aim of the theatre should be to challenge this exaggerated seriousness, not to replace it with dullness, but to offer the viewer an inspirational existential alternative. The viewer should be inspired to take interest in new scientific issues, to develop good taste and a responsible and curious attitude towards the world and their environment.

Kosmos is an old Greek word κόσμος. It states that in the space that surrounds us exists a system- an order which is above our human existence. It is known as everything that surrounds us. MicroKosmos form and move macroKosmos, just like a clock works. It is an ancient fractal theory which states that in smallest pieces lies the order of the biggest and vise versa. The movement of the puppet in your hands and in your world exists just like you exist in Gods world. The more you see, the more you are seen.
