396 I like 19 I do not like
The most powerful of all performance alchemy is when performer and spectator magically become “one". It is when the borders starts to disolve of who's really the participant and who's the observant.
“From Spectate to Participate” is a medley of music, ideas, and interaction that demonstrates artists do more than entertain, they integrate.
A thriving chameleon on the Lithuanian music scene, the artist Jurgis Did has experimented with various music styles and entertainment formats. He has written hits, won awards and represented Lithuania in the Eurovision song contest.
Yet, Jurgis doesn’t consider himself a musician. The Colombian-Lithuanian that studied Political Science and Business, has experience in political campaigning, corporate education, media-consulting, and many other things “social”.
With music as his tool, Jurgis explores social engineering between people, seamlessly mixing his passion for music and social phenomenon. Jurgis is out to prove that breaking the boundaries of participating, can make the artistic experience more powerful.
