“Multidisciplinary artist with education in contemporary dance.
P Bastys explores movement through concept of transformation.
Miss Plastica is artist name used when working on transformative performances.
With a classical ballet training at the M. K. Čiurlionis National art school (LT) and
bachelor in contemporary dance at The Danish National School of Performing Arts (DK), P Bastys had few projects in a contemporary dance field.
Worked with choreographers such as Mia Habib (NO) with a following two year tour in France, Germany, Norway, Denmark, and Yvonne Rainer (US) where he took part in live performances of Yvonne Rainer’s retrospective exhibition at the “Raven Row” gallery in London.
As well he did few collaboration projects with other freelance artists.
After few years working as a contemporary dancer, Povilas shifted his focus and started working at the cabaret Mademoiselle in Brussels.
There Povilas established its alter ego Miss Plastica.
During his four year journey at the cabaret scene, Povilas started exploring Miss Plastica’s performances on other stages and performance constations such as Beyeler fondation (CH), Mo Museum (LT) and other non theatre spaces such as music festivals and galleries.
P Bastys found an interest to explore pop culture and entertainment fields.
There he found a lot of freedom for expression and possibilities to improve creative quality level at those spaces.
Momentaly Povilas is organising cabaret events in Lithuania where he is establishing performance space setting for alternative short performances.
Besides dance, artist is closely working with makeup, costume and set design to bring out very personalised performances.”
