It is with great honor that I will be presenting my work for the Open Look International Dance Festival 2019. Since I have arrived, I have had the pleasure to work with great artists forging, for decades to come, the landscape of contemporary dance in St Petersburg as well as in Russia.
The collaboration with the dancers from the Dance House ‘Kannon Dance’ has awoken a unique project of dance meeting high-end technology. The creation time was a fantastic experience in all aspects. These great human beings have given everything, and pushed their limits to give you the best experience possible, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
The second collaboration with the wonderful and renowned artist Nina Zmievest has pushed even further the exploration of virtual spaces and body installation. A confine human experience based on trust, allowed the process to express a speechless dialogue of imagery and sounds, ready to touch you in ways you cannot imagine.
Both of these projects were created here in St Petersburg and were only made possible by the vision of Vadim Kasparov. His knowledgeable mind is one hundred percent dedicated to challenge and surprise the audience by inviting versatile mind blowing works. The festival and the crew have also made sure to surrender the artists with great generosity and warm-hearted respect, and this experience will remain one of a kind. There is nothing virtual about how all of this has made me feel.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank you
