Orchestra
Choreographer: Edouard Kouchnarev
A one-act new and original ballet production featuring the popular music of M. Ravel. “Orchestra” features professional dancers and students from BBT/School of Russian American Ballet. Edouard Kouchnarev made it a mission to animate every musical instrument and even an entire orchestra onstage through the elements of classical dance. Both the young and the mature dancers of Brighton Ballet Theater recreate not only the voices of the instruments through the art of dance, but also transfer the characteristics of the musicians themselves; each of which have their own personal weaknesses and strengths. The main goal of the production is to prove that a large company is especially in need of a wise and powerful leader, who is capable of unifying the people. The atmosphere of creative work attracts groups who have similar principles in terms of trust, friendship and respect towards one another.
