During the week from September 6 to 12, Stay Home with Russian Seasons, a unique cultural project platform, will be broadcasting productions of the Open Look International Dance Festival. Recordings will be available Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. CET on russianseasons.org.
Open Look - Russia's largest contemporary dance festival. Contemporary dance has long ceased to amaze with the variety of genres and art movements it incorporates, from verbatim to butoh dance, from video art to installation. Nevertheless, every year the Open Look festival surprises even the most sophisticated viewers with its exclusive selection of participants.
On Tuesday there will be a show of the performance ‘BREACHE’ - a dance parable. It combines painting with contemporary dance, instrumental live with experimental electronic music, and manifests the nature of related arts concentrated in one space in a new way. Addressing the theme of collective experience, choreographer Margarita Tsareva boldly builds 'living pictures' - complex figurative compositions, deliberately involving the viewer in a circle of conscious sensations and improvisation. It is as if the dance activates the viewer's cross-perception by combining scenic images with 'live' stage pictures. The art director was Lana Kuznetsova, choreographer-director - Margarita Tsareva, painting - Lo Si, instrumental accompaniment - Ilya Leontiev (trumpet).
Thursday night, you'll meet with the production Gaudi. To see the world as an extraordinary architect, to take a breath with all your senses, to sound from linearity to fluidity, to catch the elusive, to breathe in life, to create for a Person, to leave for ages, and to spend this evening with him - this is what you are going to experience. The choreographer is Viktoria Archaya. Performers: Victoria Archaya, Pavel Ryabov-Korsakov, Elizaveta Volkonovskaya, Tatyana Karachevtseva.
"For us, it is very important to complete the picture of the world with a new dance every year. We consider it our duty to set a professional frame of reference, giving a unique opportunity to study different schools in our practice and feel how different techniques and methods can intertwine in the work of one teacher. I'm glad that thanks to the Stay Home with Russian Seasons platform, even more viewers will be able to appreciate the work we've done," said Vadim Kasparov, Open Look festival director.
