Salute by Gabrielė Labanauskaitė Diena

2016: we are in the Lithuanian town of Kaunas inside the Salomeja Neris Memorial Museum. Gabrielė Labanauskaitė Diena’s new mini-play takes a playful look at what the politically controversial poet Salomeja Neris would think of the museum that celebrates her legacy.

Gabi’s play is a thought-provoking, tongue-in-cheek sketch of a ghostly encounter between the poet and the objects of her past. It will be adapted for the stage by GoodDog Theatre Co. in collaboration with their dramaturge, Jeni Cumming and curated by the Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation (London).

The play has been translated by Julija Gulbinovic.

Get tickets for the opening on September 19th.
