Director Statement

Little Incidents is a result of years of my work with and for young audiences in Europe and beyond. I have written two novels for young adults and two plays that are regularly produced by youth theatres in Lithuania and abroad. I facilitated many storytelling and creativity workshops for young adults in Europe, Northern Africa, North America and elsewhere. In the course of this work, I have noticed that, on the one hand, constant immersion into informational communication technologies make young adults less and less comfortable with face-to-face interactions. On the other hand, constant (re)presentation of themselves in social media exposes them to an enormous pressure to look and be perfect. But is it possible to live your entire life fencing yourself off of everything that causes you even the slightest discomfort? Life stories of the protagonists of Little Incidents show that it is not. In this series, the main characters are forced to live with people whom they would never choose to live with, and they are not prepared for this challenge! But only in dealing with 'the other' you learn to deal with yourself.
