“Every Brilliant Thing” is the story of a young man who despite the great challenges in his life has found a way to stay strong. That is the list of wonderful things worth living for. These things are not some somewhat grand or hard-to-reach. They are simple as ice cream, the smell of old books, dancing around a bunch of schoolbags in a circle at a school disco, things with stripes and so on.
The show will make you laugh yourself to tears, and sometimes make you sad. This is a performance about you, even if you did not live in Klaipėda in the 1990’s and do not know what “palivalkė” is. Even if you or your relatives never had depression. Because it is a performance about the most important things in life.
The show is full of wonderful paradoxes. The creators of the performance affirm life when talking about death. By choosing the form of an open game, they penetrate to the very essence of things.
It is not a typical one-man show, although there is only one actor on the stage, Martynas Nedzinskas, a master of improvisation, the winner of the Golden Cross of the Stage, who is assisted by jazz musician Dmitrij Golovanov. Spectators are also included. Members of the audience are invited to the stage to play one episode or the other. Every Brilliant Thingis both therapy and a work of art.
