(ver-ta vok-tis) from Lithuanian
(v) worth trying to understand
Verta Voktis explores avant-garde ways of creating visual art, from physical theatre to film, photography and installations. Each production has a unique visual identity and distinctive musical score. The work aims to resonate with our deepest desires, fears and subconscious mind, sentiments we rarely access in our every day lives. We leave space for quiet interpretation and personal connection to our stories.
