Mime Theatre "A"

The mission of the ŽVEJŲ RŪMAI Culture Centre is to foster the culture and traditions of amateur art, to create conditions for the artistic self-expression of the residents of the city, and for the fulfilment and development of their cultural needs. ŽVEJŲ RŪMAI enables people of all ages to engage in artistic activities, as well as administers and provides technical conditions for the activities of amateur art groups.

ŽVEJŲ RŪMAI organises the celebration of public holidays in Klaipėda: the Day of Restoration of the State of Lithuania (16th of February), the Day of Restoration of Independence of Lithuania (11th of March), the Day of the State (Coronation of King Mindaugas of Lithuania) (6th of July), as well as Christmas and New Year events. This includes solemn ceremonies (raising of the state flag), processions, concerts, promotions and other events.

It also organises events to commemorate significant dates: the Freedom Defender’s Day (13th of January), the Day of Mourning and Hope (14th of June), the Day of the Baltic Way (23rd of August) and other.

Every two years, ŽVEJŲ RŪMAI organises the Šermukšnis International Street Theatre Festival. The 20th anniversary of the festival was marked on 5-7 July 2019.

Since 2008, the Jaunatis (Crescent) Theatre Festival for Children and Youth with the participation of theatres of the country has been organised in February each year.

ŽVEJŲ RŪMAI presents to the public of the city the performances of high-level Lithuanian and foreign professional artistic groups (the most outstanding productions of the country’s theatres, concert programmes of various performers).

The culture centre develops and implements educational programmes for different age groups, as well as for different needs and interests.
