:The Circle of Sutartinės: is a performance event that marks the opening of urban installation The Building Site, as part of the London Festival of Architecture.


Sutartinės is a form of polyphonic music performed by female singers in north-east Lithuania. This type of singing is awarded by UNESCO Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Traditionally, these melodies are sung in harmony and are used to promote the sharing of cultural values and identity.

:The Circle of Sutartinės: will create a meditative space for those who are searching to reconnect with nature by singing. Led by specialist vocalist Vėjūna Žalalytė, visitors are invited to join-in and explore the meaning of the traditional Lithuanian verses. 


The Building Site pavilion is an immersive re-imagination of a secluded Lithuanian forest in the heart of St. Paul's that seeks to confront rapid urban development and questions its impact on human relationships to nature. 

We invite You to visit this hidden experimental forest in the heart of London from 8-30th June. Each weekend, The Building Site will host poetry readings, music performances, video screenings, and debates. During these events, visitors will have a chance to explore the diverse and unique interpretations of human relation to nature.
