If there is a Palermo in Stuttgart, then there is a beach in the city. This will become true for one summer Sunday afternoon through the collaborative work Sun and Sea by the Lithuanian theatre and film director Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, writer and poet Vaiva Grainytė, and composer and performance artist Lina Lapelytė. Visitors who will enter the Palermo Gallery in Stuttgart on this afternoon in June can observe a colorful and melodic beach scene from above.

In the collaborative work of Rugilė Barzdžiukaite, Vaiva Grainytė and Lina Lapelytė special attention is put on the relationship between documentation and fiction, realism and poetry, as well as on the crossover of theatre, music and fine arts.
