The first of them will be the dance performance “I am a seagull.” Playing with meanings, we are balancing between the past and the future, then torn down from the familiar cliff towards our “cosmic past”, then referring to the pictures of the Russian ball. This is also about our eternal nowhere “: gathered to fly and … did not fly away. Or flew away, but not there,” – said Sergei Smirnov, choreographer and director of the Eccentric Ballet of Sergei Smirnov, about the production.
Two premieres from the Provincial Dances theater will be presented on the stage of the Sinara Center concert hall. Choreographer Tatyana Baganova will show her interpretation of the story about Bluebeard, and Alexandra Stolyarova will show her work Essence.
“The word essence is translated as essence, essence, core, gut, self, nature. I can’t find a Russian analogue to this word that combines so many meanings. For me, it’s about pure energy manifested in matter. It’s taste, smell, inner depth, something completely real. Me inspires to watch how people exchange, nothing can appear by accident, or disappear “, – said Stolyarova.
