Eye Gymnastics is a stage name of Viktorija Damerell and Gailė Griciūtė. The artists collaborate in creating experimental music performances, which often feature verbal instructions used in eye gymnastics and mindfulness meditation, as well as verbal healing charms. In their vocal explorations, sensual timbres merge with mental voyages, hypnosis and the echoes of pop music.
At the Jauna Muzika festival the Eye Gymnastics duo presents a live vocal performance developed in a dialogue with Refusenik’s sound material. During the show, texts that have been originally inspired by eye exercises transform into imagination workout, in which gradually evolving melodic interludes get combined with the spoken songs.
