‘The exhibition is based on the Lithuanian Folklore Theatre’s play – the mourning rituals in memory of the Baltic Knights, Let’s Mourn the Fall of Prussia (written and directed by Povilas Mataitis, scenography and costume designer Dalia Mataitienė). The premiere of the play took place on 15th of July 1989, on the day of the 579th anniversary of the Žalgiris Battle. The Prussian costumes recreated by Dalia Mataitienė, have no analogues not only in Lithuania, but also in the whole world, testify to the uniqueness of the Prussians and their high spiritual culture.’
By curator V. Vareikis
Exhibition design is a contemporary interpretation of the original scenography. It references design structures that were used in the play, changing its materiality to contrast with the exhibition space and make the the costumes and their colourful patterns stand out.
