In search of exclusive product and new choreographic names, the management of the Stanislavsky Music Theatre annually opens its experimental Small stage to four emerging choreographers in a project called INTERSECTION POINT. A twenty-minute ballet, minimal budget and no creative restrictions – these are the given conditions.
In previous years, choreographers from Russia, Great Britain, Israel, Austria, Germany, Albania and China participated in the project. The result is sixteen original ballets created especially for the dancers of the Stanislavsky ballet over four years.
Today the INTERSECTION POINT project has not only proven its right to exist - it has become one of the highlights of the season anticipated both by the dancers and audience.
To keep up with the times because every single epoch has its own vocabulary of the plastic arts, its own aesthetics. Contemporary body expression gives us a possibility of better emotional communication with audience.
Knowledge of the new lexis develops dancers; close contact with the choreographers in person enriches their inner world. Due to this work dancer learns own body, hence improves own dance technics, both contemporary and classic.
Working on new choreography we are forging a strong connection between today and yesterday.
Artistic director of the Stanislavsky Ballet
