Pneu Pneu Pneu

- a group choreography for 9 dancers and 2 musicians

Commissioned by Lithuanian dance company AURA DANCE THEATER, a Japanese choreographer Kenzo Kusuda created this group choreography Pneu Pneu Pneu as a sincere tribute and homage to Lithuania; a very beautiful, lovely country with generous and spirited people over many generations who have paved their ways through the often turbulent journey in their history, while accumulating a very symbiotic assemblage of unique and peculiar souls as their distinctive signature. Especially reflecting the collective memories and dreams of the First Republic of Lithuania (1918 – 1940), this group piece Pneu Pneu Pneu was presented at The Historical Presidential Palace of The Republic of Lithuania in Kaunas, a former President House of Lithuania.
