Yulia Arsen / Tatiana Chizhikova & Roman Malyavkin

the whip / fractional step

A two-part evening that brings together artistic positions that have one thing in common: a “twist”, a tipping point after which, just like in real life, nothing is the same anymore. Yulia Arsen’s work revolves around the whip in all its symbolic meanings; in fractional step, Tatiana Chizhikova and Roman Malyavkin deconstruct folk dance in all its ambivalence between virtuosity, bravura and despair. Danced resistance to shame and anger and acts of survival in times of upheaval.
