Dance Inversion - International Contemporary Dance Festival
10 September 2019 - 03 November 2019

SCHEDULE 10 September 2019 - 03 November 2019

International festival of contemporary dance DANCEINVERSION 20 years!

Over the years in Moscow were presented:
5 continents and islands of New Zealand, Ireland and Cuba,
30 countries
78 companies
and nearly 90 choreographers.

The festival was first shown in Moscow works by Angelin Preljocaj, Joseph Montalvo, Jan Fabre, Wim Vandekeybus, Edward Locke, Nacho Duato, Trisha Brown, Doug Varona, Josef Nadj, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon, Emio Greco, Lemi Ponifazio, Shen Wei, Akram Khan , Sidi Larbi Sherkaoui, Dada Masilo ... Today they are the masters of contemporary dance, whom the public knows and loves. The festival represented national legends: the company of Alvin Ailey, NDT and Jiri Kilian, Jean-Christophe Mayo, Caroline Carlson, Sasha Waltz, Mauro Bigonzetti, Ohad Naharina. 20 years ago, the Festival legalized / updated the Russian contemporary dance and choreographers, later called the cult by Yevgeny Panfilov, Tatiana Baganova, Sergey Smirnov, Olga Pona.

Our main mission has always been the discovery for the domestic public of new names and new trends in dance art. The Festival remains true to this in the jubilee program, including the names of the masters and the debutants who have already brightly declared themselves.

In recent years, it is very important for us to show the influence of national cultures on the development of dance and the enrichment of its vocabulary. Kukai Dantza company presents an amazing synthesis of the Spanish Basque and dance theater temperament in the Oscar play, staged by the promising and already actively sought-after Marcos Morau. Michelle Dorrans boldly synthesizes the symbol of American danculture - a step with a variety of vocabulary contemporary.

We invited for the first time a troupe from Lebanon and the most interesting Omar Razhekh. “Minaret” is a spectacle - a pain, a spectacle - a cry in the name of saving the world from destruction. For some time, the troupe of Jo Stromgen opened Scandinavia for us for the first time, and now the National Opera and Ballet Theater of Norway comes to us with a ballet based on the play by Henrik Ibsen. This is a modern reading of the cult "Gedda Gabler." It is extremely important for us to show the new fascinatingly beautiful version of “THE RITE OF SPRING” performed by the Chinese company “Peacock”, staged by its leader Yang Liping, a wonderful dancer and choreographer. The world-famous Ballet of the Lyon Opera will present in Moscow an unusual and very relevant work of the Belgian choreographic tandem Peeping Tom. We are proud that our friend Paul Lightfoot and the great NDT team with exclusives from Crystal Peit and Marco Goeke will come to the Festival again. Laureate of the prestigious British award Lawrence Olivier, the legendary Akram Khan for the first time in Moscow will show his team and a new work, the world premiere of which will take place this summer.

This year is the anniversary year for our colleagues, the Golden Mask festival, which celebrates its 25th anniversary. Therefore, at the end of the program, we will jointly present the Moscow premiere of the play “Autobiography” of the famous Wayne McGregor performed by his company.

Anniversary of the Festival DANCEINVERSION - this is not a reason to stop there. We continue our search and direct our gaze to the future of modern dance.

Art Director, Festival Producer
