In Alecto, solo created in 2018, Vilma Pitrinaite, stationed on a stool, portrays an ancient divinity, dark and disturbing, who only reveals herself progressively. Her lack of humanity is betrayed by her predatory, rather unnatural movements, as much as it is by the differences between her appearance and the human body: the head covered with white dreads reminiscent of snakes, the spines which cover various parts of her epidermis. Her dance is slow, reptilian, and has something of a mortal seduction about it.

A chair placed on a small pedestal, and a silhouette topped with tracery evoking Medusa. The pallor of the complexion contrasts with the hands, the extremities of which seem to be ravaged by obscurity, it’s not long before the shoulders, bristling with spines, reveal themselves. Vilma Pitrinaite portrays a vengeful and stubborn divinity in this toxic solo. Peril is brewing.
