Moscow – X² at the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre

On the 10th March 2017, Dustin Klein’s latest choreography ‘X²’ premiered at the Stanislavsky Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre in Moscow. ’X²’ is based on and inspired by the work of the Russian avant-garde artist, Kazimir Malevich; in particular the pureness and simplicity of the Suprematist art movement and his iconic ‘Black Square’.

The whole team had a great week preparing for the premiere in Moscow – an impressive and exciting city that I would love to visit again. Creative director for the incredible visuals is Paul Putzar and they were brought to life by Nicolai Kovacs’ animation skills.

A big thank you to all of the dancers involved, artistic director Laurent Hilaire and last but by no means least, producers of the ‘Intersection Point’ evening Ksenia Nikolskaya and Daria Fomina.

Better late than never… Here is a selection of photos from the performance ‘Bavarian Summit’, an evening celebrating young choreographers working in Bavaria and part of the ‘Dance First’ international dance festival in Fürstenfeldbruck. I had designed the costumes for three of the seven pieces presented in the evening, for the choreographers Dustin Klein and Maged Mohamed.
