The festival plan to use the beautiful rivers Nemunas and Neris, as well as water transport for performances, as the banks of river provide plenty of space for the social-distancing audience.

The proposal has to include a description of up to 300 words, a link to a full video of your performance, technical rider and the number of times you can perform a day.
