LAST SONG

2021

This short dance film explores the relationship between the heritage of Soviet architecture and the bodies that inhabit it. The things that stay after a half-century occupation are not only the monuments of urban architecture but also networks of social, emotional, and interpersonal architecture that are deeply engrained into the populations of post-soviet countries. The immediate response to a relict of an occupier is to destroy it or to unrecognizably renovate it - however, is this the most optimal solution? Will that help to renovate the internal human architectures? Or will that just put the people in a perpetual motion of running away from the past and hence from the future?


This video is a collaboration between Dovydas Strimaitis and a musician Julijona Biveinytė.
