Réside à: Vilnius, Lituanie

Gabrielė Labanauskaitė was born in Lithuania in 1980. She is a poet, prose writer, playwright and book critic. She has a master degree in theory and history of literature from Vilnius University. She's currently working on a PhD about the narrative construction of stage plays and teaches history and theory of playwriting at the Lithuanian Music and Theatre Academy in Vilnius. In 2008 she completed the script writer's course at the New York Gotham Writers Workshop.

Labanauskaitė uses song and spoken word as a vehicle for her poetry, in conjunction with CD and DVD releases. In 2004 she produced the multimedia CD 'Apelsinai aikštėj apgriuvusioj' (Oranges on a Wretched Square) followed in 2009 by the poetry/music/video collaboration 'Avaspo' (Audiovisual Asp of Poetry) releasing its debut 'Nėra okeano' (There Is No Ocean).

Her work has been published in cultural newspapers and literature almanacs ('Baltija','Žiemos žodžiai') since 1992. In 2003 she started writing stage plays, of which 'The One that Hurts the Most', 'Circus' and 'In-fucked' won awards at the National Lithuanian Plays contest and were staged in Finland, Sweden and the UK.

Since 2006 Labanauskaitė organises the annual festival 'Tarpfest' (In-between Festival), Lithuania's only audiovisual poetry festival. The festival takes place in the three major Lithuanian cities Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda.
