Accuracy, passionate enthusiasm in work and self-denial... Without a doubt, these words fall short in defining the dancers of the Moscow Ballet... The Moscow Ballet is a progressive dance company that places modern dance and ballet at the centre of their original artistic vision. For Every Direction is North, the Belgian choreographer Karine Ponties worked with seven modern dancers of ballet, resulting in a show you will watch without a blink. Every Direction is North appeals not only to the dance enthusiast but to those who are interested in and enjoy seeing extra-ordinary examples of contemporary art. It is a work that embraces the audience at each performance and focuses on not one single section of life, but life itself.
To take a step back, to take a breath...
Every Direction is North deepens our sight by providing an emotional distance by placing art between ourselves and life. Seven dancers will appear before us with seven different interpretations on life, our emotional states, conflicts, sudden outbursts and withdrawals with a performance that will be etched not only into our hearts but also on our minds.
