Have you ever wondered how the performance is born? Text like mantras chanting actors behind the closed doors in the distant cornerns of theatre, an authoritative voice of the director, magically stitching costumes and a thoughtful composer creating the soundtrack? Not at all. Three actors, one playwright, one table and three chairs - welcome to the process of creating the performance. Where does the art come from? What are similarities of creativity and death? About what and how does the theatre talks to us? Critics in the art news portals, spectators in the theater cloakroom, interviews with directors for cultural shows says: about everything. And we're building a performance about nothing.
The performance of director Linas Jurkštas according to the respective of talking “About Nothing” is a comic, absurd, and humorous artistic tale, turning the auto-irony spotlight towards its creators.
From the first reading of the play until the premiere, one of the spectators accompanying the actor at one night sees both the process of creating the performance and the story in a manner of Italian commedia dell'arte of a young man trying to defeat Death.
Performance "About Nothing" - it is the backstage of creation process that was moved to the front of the stage, a playful provocation and a fast balancing between the nonsense and questions of existence.
