The annual “NCPA Dance Festival 2017” is to kick off next month with St. Petersburg Eifman Ballet productions Anna Karenina and Rodin. The two productions will be performed from September 13th to 16th.

On September 13th and 14th, Anna Karenina will lead audience to the Russia in the 19th century. The ballet focuses on the romantic entanglement among Anna, Vronsky and Karenin, with Tchaikovsky’s music. The Principal Dancer Maria Abashova will play Anna Karenina.

The choreographer Boris Eifman’s works are not confined to stylised ballet movements or any old-fashioned ballet style. Instead, he has made unremitting efforts for the art in his life, opening up a new world for the ballet in Russia.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of great sculptor Rodin’s death, and the ballet Rodin choreographed by Eifman in 2011 will be staged at NCPA for the first time, from September 15th to 16th.

The ballet touches upon legendary life and artistic creation of Rodin and his student, mistress and Muse Camille Claude. Over the course of 15 years, they become one both physically and mentally and make achievements by mutual help, but finally they break up since Rodin cannot give up his feelings for another mistress Rose Beuret.

Photo

In the ballet Rodin, the two artists are entangled in love, hatred and jealousy of each other’s artistic talent, and all these are presented to audience in a shocking body language.

Photo

The gravitation-free lifts, thrilling great leaps and jaw-dropping character shapes seem to challenge and refresh the imagination of the beauty of human body.

Photo

In this ballet, many of Rodin and Claude’s sculpture works are presented in the form of dancing, such as Rodin’s The Gates of Hell and Claudel’s Clotho. The dancers’ flexible bodies are treated as mud molds, which are then stretched, twisted, shaped, and made into great sculptures.

Oleg Gabyshev, Principal Dancer of the Elfman Ballet, plays Rodin in the ballet. In 2013, he won the “Golden Mask Award” (the highest drama award in Russia) for this role. By dancing with the beauty of masculinity, he will show audience more about the great artist Rodin’s life.
