Portraying the tumultuous and exhilarating adventure that is the career of a professional dancer, “Shinka: The Life Cycle of a Dancer”, pairs original choreography and compositions by renowned composer Grigory Smirnov from Moscow Conservatory and The Julliard School, with spoken word and art works by the prolific visual artist Cristian Aluas. The story depicts a dancer’s journey from her first ballet class all the way through her performance career to her eventual retirement and transition into the non-performing world of dance. The paintings will be a window into her deepest desires as an artist, and the struggle to meld those aspirations with the physical confines of her body.
