Four Characters in Search of a Plot
12:00, 19:00. Evening of one-act ballets. “Four Characters in Search of a Plot” featured four young international choreographers, making their debut with Russia’s esteemed ballet troupe. Commissioned were an hour-long piece,“The Ninth Wave” by Bryan Arias (Puerto Rico) and three 15-minute works, “Just” by Simone Valastro (Italy), “Fading” by Dimo Milev (Bulgaria) and “Silentium” by Martin Chaix (France). The idea for this highly unusual program came to Makhar Vaziev, artistic director of the company, in the beginning of April, when the scheduled performances had been cancelled and the dancers were sent home due to Covid-19. “It was a very difficult situation. Everyone missed their job so much that I decided to inspire our artists and give them energy, power and hope,” Vaziev wrote on the company’s website. “I wanted to motivate our dancers with creativity and new projects.” To select the choreographers, Vaziev watched video recordings from the candidates and discussed the works with his colleagues at the Bolshoi. The four selected artists—Arias, Valastro, Milev and Chaix—were invited to come to Moscow to begin work with the dancers.
