Teatronas is an organisation that works with the development of contemporary circus and producing theater shows in Lithuania.
While the theatrical work of Teatronas aims to create abnormal pieces of drama by interpreting classical works in a surprising manner (Shakespeare in soviet apartments, Five-acts of tragedy presented as a five fine-dining meals dégustation etc.), their work in the circus has done the opposite. It tries to legitimise a completely young art form by mentoring artists, negotiating with policy makers and having one of the biggest contemporary circus festivals in the country – Cirkuliacija.
In between the pandemic waves, Teatronas has managed to open the first and only centre for contemporary circus named Cirko Sapiens. Now the center has an international residency program, housing various workshops and training spaces for professionals and functions as the only contemporary circus school in the country with public presentations.
