In Swan Lake Solo, there are neither white birds nor princes. In collaboration with composer Anton Svetlichny, Olga Dukhovnaya proposes her own version of Swan Lake, to turn this classical ballet into a modern performance.
On 9 March 2022, the front page of the Russian opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta featured displays of the silhouettes of four ballerinas from Swan Lake against the background of a nuclear explosion. Since the fall of Gorbachev, television has broadcast Tchaikovsky’s ballet whenever the news gets too hot.
Having intended to make a large scale version, the war dealt a final blow to her project after two years of lockdown and Olga Dukhovnaya gave up the idea of choreographing Swan Lake for 32 dancers, an orchestra and singers commissioned by the new Moscow museum.

Undertaking an ecological deconstruction, the Ukrainian choreographer then concentrated the entire corps de ballet in that of a single performer: herself. An essential and dynamic dance show was born from all these constraints, giving Swan Lake Solo the tones of joyful and delightful freedom.
