'KosmosJam' is based on ancient Russian and Lithuanian rituals songs connected with the Cosmos, Solstice, and Human's relationship to the Earth.
Pletai reinvent these songs together with multimedia projects and pre-recorded sounds from space, to produce an otherworldly performance which lifts the audience out of the everyday.
