Way. She is the way. Where does it start and where will it lead? She knows.
She feels part of the smallest, but is the essence of the largest in this world. Doesn't this world begin with her? Yes, it is the beginning. And therefore the path is directed exactly from the middle of it.
The spirit is the foundation on which it stands. Faith is the weapon she holds. Truth is the core that builds the frame from the inside. She braids all the cruelty of this world and transforms it into love, with which she takes every next step. Her eyes always see a reference point. Until they close their eyes for the last time, they will see truth and love and beauty.
In the language of modern dance, live singing and electronic music, "Kosachka" unfolds in time and space a mystical story about the journey of the human spirit, which is intertwined with the reality and experience of today. Turning to ancient rites that mark important stages in a woman's life, the team explores the nature of female power, its unique features, nature, origins and ways of manifestation in the world.
