Artscenico performing arts and Paul Hess became strong partners during many productions. In 2013 they visited Kaunas to create and perfrom at Grynparkas festival. During this project Paul Hess got in contact and realized the potential of AURA Dance Theatre. The idea of a German-Lithuanian co-production was born.
