ЗОЛОТАЯ МАСКА - ФЕСТИВАЛЬ И ПРЕМИЯ
(contemporary dance)

POST ENGAGEMENT. DIPTYCH. PART 2

Provincial Dances, Yekaterinburg
Choreography Tatyana Baganova



After a pause Tatyana Baganova, the recognized leader of contemporary Russian dance, shows her new work at the “Golden Mask”, which she created for the well-known festival American Dance Festival in Durham (USA). A master in composing freakish stories that do not lend themselves to the logic of verbal expression, but that are full of unknown meanings, allusions and metaphors, Baganova remains true to her style here. She creates an atmosphere through snippets of various dances and intricate settings around the main symbol of the performance: a ball, or rather several inflatable balls of different sizes. And, of course, she sticks to her favourite method: playing with women’s disheveled hair that is piled up in the effective finale.

The theatre “Provincial Dances” of recent years has renewed its troupe, selecting not according to the principle of a unified style but according to human individuality. Here everyone dances in the crowd, but everyone has their own role, scope and voice.
