    The maProject was originally initiated by three individual dance artists from the new and the older member countries of the European Union: the Netherlands, Poland and Lithuania. Interested in artistic collaboration with each other Liat Magnezy, Agnija ┼áeiko and Konrad Szymanski came up with an idea for a project intended for meeting East and West of Europe for the purpose of exploration and expression: ÔÇťWith this new initiation we are interested in widening the boundaries of our creativity and contributing to the better understanding of our own cultural background as well as of the othersÔÇŁ.
    For these collaboration two other artists, Bulgarian composer Petar Doundakov and Dutch film and video artist Joost van Veen, were invited to have their input in creating multidisciplinary arts installation.
    Finally the project involved 34 artists from Lithuania, Netherlands, Bulgaria and Poland – dancers, performers, musicians and singers, who widened the geographic scope of the project.

    maProject premiered on 18 of September 2009 at 7pm in Lobby of the New Palace of Vilnius Academy of Arts (Mal┼źn┼│ str. 5, Vilnius, Lithuania).

    More performances took place on:
    Friday 18th of September 8pm 9pm
