More about SANTAKA event
SANTAKA is the second major event of the Contemporary
Myth of Kaunas Trilogy. We invite you to one of Lithuania’s
most impressive cities to encounter the contradictions lying
within all of us and to celebrate unity together. The water
show, massive in scale and unique in content, will surprise
everyone, we promise that!
The date of this event was chosen not accidentally: Kaunas
City celebrates its birthday annually in late May. At the same
time, Kaunas District will hold one of its most memorable
celebrations, the international kite festival “Between the
Earth and the Sky”. Thus, the entire weekend will be dedicated
to all these events. The title SANTAKA symbolizes the sense
of community shared between the people of Kaunas and
Kaunas District and the region’s ties with other European
cities. We hope that the weekend’s celebrations will inspire
us all to reconnect with the waters around Kaunas and fulfil
the city’s dream to reunite with its rivers!
The entire weekend will feature shows by acrobats, contemporary circus performances, river excursions, and musical
tours to river towns and settlements in Kaunas. The public
will be invited to the unveiling of the “Nemuno7”, an environmental design project that is unique in the European context.
If the pandemic situation permits, we hope to welcome
guests from the other two European Capitals of Culture –
Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg) and Novi Sad (Serbia), and
also from Alytus town, which enjoys the title of Lithuania’s
Capital of Culture in 2022.
