“We have planned effective doses of experience for the residents – professionals of various arts including theatre, dance, contemporary circus and music will perform in the yards,” Virginija Vitkienė, the CEO of Kaunas 2022, said in a press release.

Performances of up 20 minutes will take place in various locations around Kaunas several times a week. The project will continue as long as the quarantine remains in place, according to the organisers.

Meanwhile, an initiative Viskas Bus Gerai (Everything Will Be Okay) is hosting music performances in smaller towns across Lithuania, including in Šilutė, Visaginas and Raseiniai.
