Performance “MP3. Ravel.» How to show love in dance?

Alla Sigalova — choreographer and teacher. She performed the production with the students of the Moscow art theater School, creating a unique plastic-dramatic performance without words. Through choreography and stage movement, the actors expressed on stage the strongest human feelings — passion, affection, eroticism and love. — What turns me on in this work? — said Alla. — I am always excited by talented people, and this course is very special. This work is an experience of self-knowledge, psychological abilities and emotional resources. You thought, that you can only whisper about love, and it turns out — can yelling, severing; and jangling in blood. Performers — students of School-Studio of MKHAT (course Igor ‘ zolotovitskiy and Sergei Zemtsov): Anton Anurov Andrey burkovsky, Basil Brichenko, Dmitry Vlaskin, Alexander Oleskevich, Catherine Golovin, Alexander Dmitriev, Artem Eshkin, Pauline Kazantsev, Larissa Kokoev, Dmitry Ismagilov, Edijs Salax, Anton rival, Roman Repka, Elizabeth Redheads, Denis Matveev, Ksenia Fedotova, Sophia Lebedev, Stanislav Rumyantsev, Love Sokolinskaya. Love play can be. It can be drawn, sketched, drawn or modeled. You can even digitize and encode. But this will get digitized encoded love and sense. The actors of the play “MP3. Ravel” love is not just shown, they lived it. The viewer also had nothing to do. Because the eroticism of the play reached a high level of imagination. The next step is a personal sensory experience. But that’s another story. Amazing impact on human rhythms have “Bolero”. Often repetitive rhythm is the basis of methods of suggestion, meditation. “Om, om, om,” the yogis repeat many times, renouncing the outer world of vanity. The hypnotic effect of Ravel’s music consists in the constant repetition of one melody many times, against which two themes are also held many times, demonstrating an extraordinary increase in emotional tension and introducing new instruments into the sound. The drum mints the breathing rate, heart rate and its reflection in the temples. So many times. Snare drum repeats 169 times (4056 strikes), two size d ostinato give a “Bolero” by Ravel with a steady rhythm. In this rhythm people rush to each other and dance their feelings. In this rhythm there is a life of the person without love in which there would be no such intense pulse. Production Of “MP3. Ravel” is a choreographic embodiment of human feelings. In them quite near attachment and hatred, sacrifice and detachment. Who said love is just a feeling? It’s dancing. Performed by young actors of the Moscow art theater school, love is a dance. Or dance is love. Who likes what better.
