With a tradition spanning nearly 80 years, the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre has been the home of the most prominent local performing arts work as well as artistic discussion about contemporary world. Over the decades the theatre itself has been, with its iconic sculpture of the “Three Muses” crowning the main entrance, a symbol of the national cultural legacy. Since 2010 LNDT has held its focus on the future of theatre in its openness to new artistic forms, disciplines, and fields. Local as well as guest artists from around the world have been invited to create here, to share their perspectives with audiences, and to engage them in an intense, if sometimes provoking dialogue with the contemporary world. The theatre sees as crucial its role as an agora, a place for gathering and discussing the here and now by delving into burning issues of modernity, an individual, and society. The theatre has recently produced works by Krystian Lupa, Árpád Schilling, Łukasz Twarkowski, Saara Turunen, Anna Smolar, and Jo Strømgren. Its recent touring directions include festivals such as Festival d’Avignon and Festival d’Automne à Paris (France), Wuzhen Theatre Festival (China), Kontakt Festival (Poland), Festival Otoño Madrid (Spain) etc.
