CLIMATE OPERA “SUN & SEA”

LAUNCH OF INFORMATION ON THE UK PREMIERE 

OF THE AWARD WINNING CLIMATE OPERA “SUN & SEA”

 

The Albany, Lewisham

Lithuania’s national entry for the 2019 Venice Biennale with an all-female creative team – visual artist and composer Lina Lapelyte, writer and poet Vaiva Grainytė and film/theatre director Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Sun & Sea received the festival’s top award, the Golden Lion for Best National Participation.

Curated by Lucia Pietroiusti (she/her), founder of the General Ecology project at Serpentine, the work has toured the world. Notable presentations include BAM (New York), New European Theatre Festival (Moscow), MOCA (Los Angeles), Teatro Argentina (Rome), Zurcher Theaterspektakel as well as presentations in Athens, Bentonville, Copenhagen, Hanover, Luckenwald, Malmo and Philadelphia.

– Sun & Sea remains one of the greatest achievements in performance of the last 10 years: wry, seductive and cunning in ways that reveal themselves days or years later. This is a performance that makes the extinction of the species feel as agreeable as a perfect pop song, and as unforgettable, too.— The New York Times

The UK premiere of Sun & Sea is presented by LIFT, the Albany and Serpentine as part of LIFT 2022, Back to Earth and We Are Lewisham.

We Are Lewisham is presented by Lewisham Council in partnership with the Albany. London Borough of Culture is a Mayor of London initiative.

Supported by the Embassy of Lithuania and co-orgnised with the Lithuanian Culture Institute and Lithuanian Cultural Attache in London
