A masterfully tuned up performance staged by the choreographer Agnija Šeiko presents an unexpected harmony of the dance of different performers combined with live performance of one of the most popular music pieces in the world carried out by four cellists. Beata Molytė, an aristocratic ballerina, Benas Šarka, a theatre shaman, Aleksas Mažonas, an actor and a mime, and Marius Pinigis, a contemporary dance performer, appear as the four elements of the universe led through the seasons by the sounds of four cellos.
Following the deconstruction based on revealing choreographic ideas, the well-known classic Antonio Vivaldi’s opus acquires an unexpectedly modern form.
