B&B is a creative duo of young dancers and choreographers Greta Grinevičiūtė (b. 1990) and Agnietė Lisičkinaitė (b. 1990). The two colleagues, who have graduated from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre at the same time, have been working together since 2016. The duo B&B not only create contemporary dance performances but also actively express their opinion on social networks and in various public actions and demonstrations, artistically conveying a clear civic position on human rights and other controversial or urgent social issues. Currently, B&B have two performances, B and B Dialogue (2016) and Banana Dream (2018). The duo have already presented themselves at dance festivals in Israel, the United Kingdom, Latvia and Germany, and every year travel to international art residencies. They have so far held residencies at Dirkin Crane dance centre in Ireland (2015), Vermont Performance LAB in the United States (2017), MASH Dance Centre in Israel (2018 and 2019) and at the dance theatre Echo Echo (2019). Since 2017, the B&B are a resident of the Art Printing House.

As an independent choreographer, she has created a dance performance Šokis dulkių siurbliui ir tėčiui (Dance for a Vacuum Cleaner and Dad, 2018), and the premiere of the sequel Dance for a Washing Machine and Mum was planned for the autumn of 2020. In 2018, Grinevičiūtė received an award from the Contemporary Dance Association for the most memorable creative work of the year.

Dancer, choreographer and educator Agnietė Lisičkinaitė graduated from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, where she obtained a Bachelor’s (2013) and a Master’s (2015) degrees in contemporary dance. Lisičkinaitė not only dances at the Airos dance theatre and Vilnius city dance theatre Low Air but also lectures at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and holds lessons at the Low Air dance school. Lisičkinaitė made her debut as a choreographer in 2014 with a dance performance Popular problems, created for the Arts Printing House programme Atvira erdvė (Open Space). In 2017, at the dance theatre Airos she created a dance performance for teenagers Z +. Since 2020, Lisičkinaitė heads the Contemporary Dance Association.

The B&B dance performance Banana Dream (2018) is a meeting of two worlds. One is dominated by black, the other by yellow. At first glance, both worlds have the same form and identical movement. But human creation has gone too far to allow completely identical phenomena to exist, so small differences imply the meaning one might not expect from a usual world.
