This is an invitation to take a look at the phenomenon when prospects of investment gentrify the status of a neighbourhood, and its old inhabitants get pushed out. The Užupis area of Vilnius is the most blatant example of this process in Lithuania: predatory city development is upstaging the devaluation of the lower social classes as they quietly retreat to more remote locations.

The creators of Like Everywhere, Like Everyone seek to freeze the present time – to stop over in a courtyard which is as yet untouched by the urbanization processes (23 Filaretų Str., Vilnius), and to study the place right before it disappears. At the moment, the courtyard is being shared by two locals – a representative of the older generation Andrey and a visual artist Augustas Serapinas. The creative team tries to comprehend this contrast and, by proceeding from its documentary platform, constructs a synthetic experience of sound and place. The actors who participate in this project will invite the viewers to pause and look around, to discover the location through the contexts of encounters between people, plants, landscape, architecture and different atmospheres of the area.



A theatre artist. In 2018 he obtained a bachelor’s degree in theatre directing from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (course mentor Jonas Vaitkus) where he continued studies and in 2020 received a master’s degree (course mentor Yana Ross). In 2018, Jasinskas debuted as an actor in the OKT performance Me, Fojerbach (directed by Lina Židonytė). In 2018, after winning a contest for young artists held by the Lithuanian National Drama Theatre, he presented there a performance Orfeo. City Lights. In 2020, his graduation play based on A. Strindberg’s play The Pelican was put on stage.

In the course of improving his artistic skills, the young artist gained experience as a director’s assistant as well as obtained internships and residencies at some of the most prominent European theatres: in 2018 at the Bergen National Drama theatre (Norway) with the director Yana Ross; in 2019 at the Volksbühne Theatre in Berlin (Germany) with the director Susanne Kennedy and at the Schauspielhaus Zürich Theatre (Switzerland) at the opening of the 2019/2020 season.

Jaunimo teatras 
Founded in Vilnius in 1965 and moved to its present building in 1982. The theatre became world famous thanks to Eimuntas Nekrošius’ early productions directed under the leadership of his first teacher director Dalia Tamulevičiūtė. In 2016, a renewed artistic programme of the Lithuanian State Youth Theatre was launched. Among its collaborators are such prominent Lithuanian and foreign directors as Eimuntas Nekrošius, Gintaras Varnas, Kirsten Dehlholm, Arpad Schilling, Yana Ross, Kristian Smeds, Eric Lacascade, and Krystian Lupa as well as promising young Lithuanian artists.
