Snieguolė Dikčiūtė

In her works, Snieguolė Dikčiūtė displays an evocative blend of constructive elements and figurative language of metaphors.

To achieve this, she often collaborated with jazz musicians, visual and video artists, actors and theatre directors. Her recent activities include music therapy and involvement of handicapped children into the process of music-making.
