CHOREOGRAPHY SESSION 2022
July 23 - July 24, 2022
TOPIC OF THE PROJECT:
CREATIVITY UNITES: PRESERVING GLOBAL VALUES
The major subject of the School was the value selection between the internal own values and what affects a man from the outside, such as mass media, Internet, and common stereotypes. How does a modern man pass through such value conflict? What contradictory values do people face? What value dilemmas do they solve? How to save global values and avoid instantaneous influences?
Participants had to reflect the struggle inside a modern man between eternal true global principles and aggressively imposed inane temptations of the modern world.
Three weeks filled with an effective program:
Classical Russian ballet lessons - 20 h
Contemporary dance technique - 20 h
Hours of rehearsals - 45 h
For the second year, the Choreography session with the support of the Innopraktika Foundation was held at The Boris Eifman Dance Academy. The purpose and mission of the session were cultural exchange. 4 foreign choreographers and 11 foreign dancers came to the Academy to practice classical and contemporary dance. Also, for three weeks, foreign dancers worked with Russian choreographers, at the same time, foreign choreographers staged their choreography on the students of the Academy. Academy students were dancers 16-18 years old professionally trained in classical and contemporary dance. In the year 2022, 16 students of the Academy and two professional artists from the Boris Eifman Ballet Theater were involved.
For the graduation concert at the end of the session a lighting and media designer were invited. Also, the Academy provided the staging with costumes and props. Those were completely professional performances with the use of stage machinery, make-up artists, etc. The beautiful finale of the session was a joint performance of the School participants and students of the Academy. It was performed as part of the II Festival of Innopraktika and Russian Seasons School "Global Values" and took place at renowned historical stage of Alexandrinsky Theater.
Furthermore, the School organized a rich cultural program: the School participants visited ballet theatres in St. Petersburg, exhibitions and museums.
