French Dancer Performs Ballet with Excavator In Moscow's park

By Tatyana Shramchenko


The choreographer Dominique Boivin and the dancer Philippe Priasso presented their "Pa de deux with Excavator" play to Muscovites as a part of the 7th International Festival of Contemporary Art "Territory". The ballet was held in the center of Moscow's Gorky Park.


"The digging device, whose function is to scrape, drill, transport and tip out, offers a poetic extension: a hand which carries, elevates, and protects. If I sometimes imagine the machine like a rough and imperfect human being – in the image of Boris KARLOFF in Frankenstein – I equally attempt to touch on the marvellous, the giddy dream of Beauty and the Beast", Dominique Boivin said.
