Although the topic of the performance is disability, in the end it faded away before the eyes of both the creative team and the audience. They see only the most empowered and free people who celebrate their own existence, their birth, their very life, – director K. Gudmonaitė recounts on the “Feast”, the performance which has been created together with the disabled people.
The disability still hides in the shadows of the social sphere. To understand it, it has to be brought closer to both the theatre and the audience, and efforts should be put in to analyse it and to hear what the disabled themselves think about the phenomenon of disability. The performers seek to lay bare the concept of normality and to question the diversity of human existence, human sensations and experiences.
