Fresh dance premiere of the Voronezh Chamber Theatre created specifically for the MANDELSTAMFEST — 2019 festival of poetic art.

The evening consists of eight miniatures staged by eight choreographers. For more than an hour audience get acquainted with various choreographic handwritings. The directors are united by the work of Osip Mandelstam — in their works they explore the poems of the poet and translate them into plastic language. This is not an illustration of the word with a gesture, but the dance of Mandelstam's poetry, the search for a specific code and a way to express it.
