Disability Knights

The series of these site-specific performances were part of a bigger project devoted to disabled people. I personally was injured and temporary disabled from work as a dancer and choreographer, so we decided to reflect on the topic of professional and general disabilities. The situation of general disability we researched during open laboratories that we led in Yaroslavl, Moscow, and Kaluga. In site-specific performances we focused on the aspect of professional disability, so we performed in front of huge theatres that showed ballet just 15 minutes before the show starts.

Classic Ballet charms the audience by incredible bodily skills and abilities of joints. The consequences of this beauty usually remain bracketed. Generally, every 3rd ballerina endures through the injury that I got. Surgery and recovery period could take 1 year and more and not always bring you back in competitive condition..
