Sasha Pepelyaev Kinetic Theater
Moscow based contemporary dance company "Kinetic Theater" combines art of choreography with achievements of Russian avant-garde in music, poetry, theatre. The idea of artistic search for new possibilities of scenic expressions inspired 11 works of the company since 1994. Many of them have been presented at numerous festivals in Russia, Europe and USA. The company performances were awarded at domestic and international choreographic meetings.
Basic interests of the company members include different approaches to physical and psychlogical energy of movements, words, sounds and contacts. Visual dynamicism and dramatic tension serve to initiate unexpected resolutions of themes. Parallel verbal and space flows help to arrange specific atmosphere for diffusion of the common tragedies into the abstraction of pure dance phrases.Juxtaposition of mutual banality with poetic power of human body stays as an endless source of themes and moods in the Kinetic Theater works.
