„A GIFT" is a collage of short videoclips done by dance artist of the project „BET 45+" with the aim to create a virtual gift to a collegue in another country, record it and sent it to him/her. The receiver got a gift and based on free interpretation of received message creates his/her own original gift and sends it to next person. The circle closes with the last person sending the gift to the first one.
This wonderful idea was born at one of the „BET 45+" zoom meeting discussions in the end of 2020/beginning of 2021. Artsist from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, UK took part in it.
The spoken text in video is based on real-life story and recorded by one of the participants of the project. All short videogifts sent to each other were simply put together and linked to create the short film of sent messages in January 2021.
Even at difficult times of pandemic despair, total isolation and different restrictions in different countries we all have the warm hearts to tune to the beat with each other and feel the same rhythm, share stories and messages – to make a GIFT to each other until we can meet in real life.
