St Petersburg, Mariinsky II

Inside the Lines
 Le Divertissement du roi 

an evening of one-act ballets



Music by Darius Milhaud (ballet Creation of the World, 1923)
Choreography by Vladimir Varnava
Costume Designer: Irina Varnava
Lighting Designer: Igor Vints

Premiere: 21 March 2015, Mariinsky Theatre
(as a part of the project A Creative Workshop of Young Choreographers)

Running time: 20 minutes


It is an amazing play of “biomasses”, from which the creator forms destinies, characters, events and stories. Mr Varnava does not amend the dance movements to fit the plot, but, like the ancient Parcae, draws the plastique thread from it, twisting and winding a tightly-knit story that is engaging visually and emotionally.
