PIROUETTE is a performance by Lithuanian artist Lina Lapelyte. Conceived for a retired ballerina and a saxophonist using the circular-breathing technique, PIROUETTE is an intimate and experiential meditation on physical endurance, ageing, movement, displacement and fragility. The work is rooted in Lapelyte's research into the physical and psychological disciplinary regimes of traditional live art forms. Together with Rugilė Barzdziukaitė and Vaiva Grainytė, Lina Lapelytė will be representing Lithuania at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
