Psilicon theatre

This theater is established in 2005 by one Lithuanian artist – Auksė Petrulienė.

“Psilicone theatre” actors are miniature silicone puppets, whose performance becomes visible as a large and colourful video projection created live.

A performance of “Psilicone Theatre” is a public video play with silicone characters, special image effects, texts, and personal objects.

The action is supported and accompanied by live music.

Silicone puppets are resilient and indestructible. Bent, stretched, pulled, pressed, immersed in various liquids and paints, they demonstrate resilience and can become an example of survival in the poisonous daily life.

„That is how the physical characteristics of puppets determined the social themes addressed by the “Psilicone Theatre”.

From 2005, “Psilicone Theatre” holds its performances in spaces untouched by art (typical courtyards of residential blocks, swimming pools of sport clubs) and traditional stages, trying by all means to meet as many untypical spectators as possible, to get to know their demands and offer them both contemporary art and an antidote for the problems tormenting society.“ (Taken from the Aukse Petruliene website.)
