"This address doesn't exist" - is a first dramaturgical text-test in Lithuanian constructed by Artificial Intelligence (Megatron 11-B). This text in a reading format was presented in 2021 in Kaunas artist's house and Lithuanian National Martynas Mazvydas Library. 

"In 10 years almost every app, software or service will be using some kind of AI" - David Cearley "Gartner Research" vice-president.


Creative team was researching artificial intelligence and using aspects of J. L. Austin performative theory were aiming to explore the text as a performative, powerful speech act. 
What content can be created? What relationship could be constructed? What influence on our language it could have and what it could tell us about ourselves?

"Wishing it would never end, going round and round and round, worried about if you’ll ever go off. Then at least it’s the daytime before you know it’s the night and you’re full of dread. When you sleep, only people seem to be awake, or maybe they’re dead and they want you to wake up. Somebody somewhere is really having the worst day ever. It just keeps going. (Fragment of the text)

Fragmented Realities (2020)

Fragmented Realities is a performance, specially made for ZOOM platform and three performers. It is researching and reflecting a fragmentation of a reality that we are living in now. Where are you, when you open your phone to check your social media, weather, or email? Could you be in both realities? How do we understand a reality today and how does it change when you are sharing it on ZOOM?

These and other related questions were crossed during the creative process and are there in the performance, which is crossing perception, performing and not performing for a camera, fear, hate, death and dream topics.

"We assume that the past influences the future. That's how we appeared to experience reality. But why can't the future influence the past? Take away the names of past and future if that helps you to think of this concept. So what if the past influences the future and the future influences the past in an endless feedback loop?"


"Through the editing of live streaming and pre-recorded images, the idea of "now" is distorted and disturbed. The audience is invited to create their own chaotic reality" Nien-Ping Yu for "The Affairs" 

Concept, directions / Arnis Aleinikovas

Performing / Alžbeta Novakova, Jachym Sura, Sai Sai. 

PRESS >>疫情時代的東歐線上藝術節/



Performance "APARTMENT" is an interdisciplinary, interactive, durational online streamed performance.  5 performers from different parts of the world will meet in one apartment and will share their presence for 24 hours. 

At that time, in Europe was happening "COVID-19 lockdown pt. 2" and artists had to search for new ways to do art. "My one of the biggest interest right now is to search for new ways to communicate and to relate to each other and make a research on performativity and performative action". - says "APARTMENT" director Arnis Aleinikovas. "Since I was a child I liked to play "SIMS" and this performance has this quality - you (as an audience) can observe their living, talk, influence their being in the presence moment". 

Apart (of two or more people or things) separated by a specified distance in time or space) + ment (forming nouns expressing the means or result of an action) = Apartment (in North American definition) is "a suite of rooms forming one residence; a flat."; 

Performance is blurring the lines in between reality and fiction, is questioning performing and it's meaning, focuses on physicality and relation in between people in the apartment and people behind the screen.
