ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

In the miniature Second I Xenia Zvereva turned to the music of Philip Glass. Today his works enjoy great popularity, being used in films; choreographers stage productions and concert pieces to them, and the ballet In the Upper Room has long been a hit at numerous theatres. In the piercing monotones of the “music of repetitive structure” (as the composer himself defines the style of his works) Ksenia Zvereva heard a theme of duplicity. The choreographer has found its visual embodiment in the combination of plastique images of a dance duet and large-scale intricate video-projections.
