On November 7, at the Kiev Municipal Academic Opera and Ballet Theater for Children and Youth, the one-act ballets “Up the River” and “Quartet-a-tete” will be shown.
The creative tasks that stand in the ballet "Up the River" the director himself calls difficult. But the more interesting it is to deal with them. The stage work is based on the storyline of “The Stories of Benjamin Button”. In the performance, one can discern allusions to Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories and Goethe’s “Faust” motifs. However, “Up the River” remains an absolutely original story, showing the viewer the specifics of modern dance art.
"QUARTET-A-TET" to the music of Ad Maas is an abstract production in the center of which four cellos, four dancers, no decorations, only white fabric. The psychological nuances and stage effects that were not previously used on the domestic ballet stage are the main feature of this performance, which has no analogues in the theater's repertoire.
