Giedrė Narušytė Boots
is a scenographer, theatre maker, audio-visual artist, animation director and animator. In 1995 she graduated in Scenography at Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania and moved to Belgium, where she continued her studies at KASK Ghent (Royal Academy of Fine Arts). For two decades she took part in different interdisciplinary art projects. She made installation art and exhibited her works in: ‘Wisselstukken '94’ Multimedia Projects in Amsterdam; 'Asile pour inadaptés' in Charleville-Mézières, France; ‘Kitsch &’ Gentse Feesten in Ghent; project ‘Op weg’ with four exhibitions in different towns in Belgium.
The following years Giedrė Narušytė Boots focused on children’s theatre. Together with Bob Van de Putte she made improvisations with actors, puppets, shadow puppets and live music. They experimented with all kinds of ways of storytelling, avoiding the use of language as the main source of communication. Children’s plays without linguistic barriers were successfully played all around Belgium for Flemish- and French-speaking children.
In 2013 she started studying animation film at the School of Arts in Ghent. Animation is a great challenge to convert her experience in visual and interdisciplinary arts into film language.
