Expectations and Other Products is an improvisational performance set in an unexpected public space, a kiosk. The authors of the idea, scenographer and art photographer Liudas Parulskis and actress Eglė Mikulionytė, say they want to highlight the trends in changing consumption and post-quarantine social interaction in the modern cultural field and promise to create a non-aggressive aura of nostalgia.
The kiosk will be built in one of Vilnius’ central locations. During the performance, customers will have an opportunity to check out the goods offered in the kiosk. The offers will include a kiosk-related souvenir (a mini kiosk, kiosk badge or paper model of the kiosk) or a one-minute excerpt from a theatrical scene selected from a menu, to be performed by a cashier in the kiosk for one viewer (who will have to peek inside through the kiosk window). Additionally, customers will have an opportunity to pick a free improvisation on a topic of their choice.
