“Shadow of a giant” - interdisciplinary art festival is a host and introducer of interdisciplinary cultural projects and spontaneous events. It geographically interconnects harmonically acting collectives and also it holds the connection with neighboring districts and other cities and countries. The name of festival is related with the farmstead Kvietkine, full of oaks, the presence of the real Lithuanian giants, where human being is meeting with his nature. The well being of man is the inspiration for activities, cherishing of the place. Network aims to generate creative exchange between performative art practitioners and to strengthen links with psychophysics scientific studies.

While visiting the farmstead, surrounded by mighty oaks, we felt the presence of the real Lithuanian giants. There we came up with the idea of inviting artist to this place and organize an interdisciplinary art festival “Shadow of a giant”, in which local artists will share their creative experience and experiment together with other participants.

Artists from other countries will be invited to get familiar with Lithuanian traditions and rituals as well as introduce authentic forms of creative expression representative of their country and background. The nearby communities of Kalvarija and Marijampolė will also be joining the festival.

The main idea of the festival is to join different traditions and types of art as well as create new rituals of nowadays. The project will open its doors to the viewers early on, introducing them to the process of art making. They will also be invited to observe and join the creative laboratories: workshops, improvisations and building of scenography lead by the artists from Lithuania and abroad.
