Syndromes Of Mimicry examines the concept of imitative behavior in post-Soviet Lithuania. What is it like to face different forms of uncertainty, such as exposure to foreign languages, racial diversity, new legal concepts and emotional insecurities resulting from the rapid change? Can mimicry stand as a possible coping mechanism in the search for what is authentic and what is not?
