Awarded with the Golden Stage Cross for the Best Choreography of the Year 2008 by the Ministry of Culture of Lithuania.

The main theme of Vigil is a state of inner watch. Through abstract dance language and associative images this performance shows a constant cycle of faith, disappointment, retraction and returning to your chosen values. It portrays human spiritual transformation and attempts to grope signs of changing reality.

Reviews:

"The performance is beautiful. Most likely, 'beautiful' is one of the best and most often used description of V.Jankauskas' performances. Yet, there isn't even a trace of sentimentality, play with beautiful forms or images. The performance is beautiful by its inner peace and harmony, sequences of plastic movement, and understanding among the dancers. Not even for a moment it crosses your mind that something could be heavy here - the four dancers move from one state to another and from one plastic element to another so naturally."
Vita Mozūraitė. Lietuvos scena, 2008 Issue 4/13

"Over more than a decade of creative work Vytis Jankauskas has developed a collected dance language, characterized by saturated and energy filled movement and he is one of the most intellectual creators of Lithuanian dance who thinks through the form of his performances as if it were a music score."
