The choreographer Vyacheslav Samodurov is not striving to meticulously follow the twists of this sad story written by Shakespeare. He almost totally gives up pantomime, leaving it to dance and physical movement to tell the story and express the emotions. At the same time his choreography does not sacrifice the intensity of feelings, the interplay between temperaments, or the dramatic aspect.
The task he set for himself is all the more difficult as he chooses the concept of “theatre in the theatre” – what the audience sees, and what the dancers present is not the performance, but a company of actors rehearsing the future production. This gives the action, feelings and meanings some additional volume, the audience feels additional emotions and the young performers are given a chance to develop as actors and as human beings.
