We are an independent team of artists, established in Klaipėda in 2012. The contemporary dance we create takes many unique forms. Our strengths lie in openness to various art forms and a desire to share the benefits of dance with the local community. Our performances are notable for their interdisciplinarity, minimalist aesthetics, connection to music, unexpected spaces and community involvement.
A permanent troupe of 8 dancers is led by artistic director Agnija Šeiko and producer Goda Giedraitytė. The focal point of our work includes dance and music performances, productions for children and site-specific performances. The company annually receives national nominations and awards and participates in festivals and on theatre stages in Europe, Israel, China, the USA and other countries.
Among many choreographers that join us for various projects, we had a privilege to host Palle Granhøj (DK), Dalija Acin Thelander (SE), Maciej Kuźmiński (PL), Alban Richard (FR), Rachid Ouramdane (FR), Vittoria De Ferrari Sapetto (IT / BE), and Daphnis Kokkinos (DE/GR).
Since 2017, we have been a part of KlaipėDAnse project that unites Lithuanian and French contemporary dance artists. As a part of this program, we organize seminars for the Klaipėda city community, dance professionals, and work on an annual joint performance with our partners from France.
Our unique approach to dance, openness, community-bonding power of movement and the eagerness to take on creative challenges are the foundation of our strong, ever-growing and creative dance company.
Company’s activities are financed by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania, Lithuanian Council for Culture, Klaipėda City Municipality, Neringa City Municipality and French Institute of Lithuania.
Šeiko Dance Company is part of ASSITEJ – International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People.
