Artistic duo Guts United consists of Marit Sirgmets (Estonia) and Simona Biekšaitė (Lithuania). It was established in 2013, right after the two graduated from Norwegian Theatre Academy. Sirenos festival is presenting the first part of the Feast Fashion production, while the second part will be performed in Tallinn, at NO99.
Feast Fashion started from the workshop in Estonian village Kadrina, where 12 unemployed people on a social benefit programme were asked to create a bridal dress collection. They were supplied with a pile of old bedsheets, curtains, scissors and couple of sewing machines. Every participant had a total freedom of expressing their imagination and thoughts, regardless of their skills and experience. After the workshop, the whole collection was shipped to Vilnius and became the dramaturgical material for the performance.
Feast Fashion is a theatrical game show, based on a bridal competition. Winner is determined based on the level of personal tragedy, i.e. who needs most outside help to be saved to be saved. By the end of the show almost all the problems will be solved.
Performance in English with Lithuanian subtitles.
