Ballet Moscow Theatre turns 30: Gogol Centre to host a gala night

October 23, 2019

On 6 November, Gogol Centre's stage will host a special program dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Ballet Moscow Theatre

The audience will see excerpts from the productions of Russian and foreign choreographers: 'Equus' by Anastasia Kadruleva and Artyom Ignatyev, 'Dance Hall' by Jeroen Verbruggen, 'Colour Transcription' by Juancho Arquez, 'Idiot Cafe' by Alexander Pepelyayev and 'Every Direction Is North' by Karine Ponties, with the program's concept by director Evgeny Kulagin and choreographer Ivan Estegneyev.

'We work with Russian and foreign choreographers of the next generation, whose names are acclaimed at the world stage. All performances have been created in collaboration with our dancers. They have no comparable counterparts in other theatres,' explains Director of the Ballet Moscow Theatre Yelena Tupyseva.

Ballet Moscow is one of the most renowned choreographic theatres in Russia. It has two troupes engaged in classical and repertory dance. Its repertoire includes works by Russian and foreign choreographers, created specially for Ballet Moscow dancers. 'Idiot Cafe' (2016) and 'Every Direction Is North' (2017) won the Russian Golden Mask theatre prize in the category Best Modern Dance Performance.

The theatre has no permanent stage, which allows dancers to experiment and take advantage of the diversity of urban spaces. You may watch performances at the best Moscow theatre venues.

In January 2020, a new production will be released, 'Death and the Girl' by choreographer Ihsan Rustem. In September, the Dutch choreographer Wubkje Kuindersma with the participation of classical troupe dancers will debut.
