One of the performative works at ARS22 will be Sun & Sea. Commenting on the current climate crisis, the immersive operatic work won the Golden Lion for the best pavilion at the Venice Biennale in summer 2019. In August 2022 the opera


Sun & Sea takes place on an artificial beach where sunbathers share stories and thoughts by singing.

The main theme of the opera is concern for climate change. It focuses especially on the relationship between reality and poetry, and the overlap between theater, music, and the visual arts.

Sun & Sea represented Lithuania at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019, where it won the Golden Lion award for the Best National Participation.

Artists: Rugilė Barzdiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė and Lina Lapelytė
