Ukrainian theatre online: “Little Prince”
The Kyiv Modern Ballet is the leading contemporary ballet company in Ukraine. The theater was conceived as an author’s theater, with its repertoire and artistic priorities being defined by award-winning director-choreographer Radu Poklitaru. The theater is focused on the formation of a creative laboratory of contemporary dance, in the form of experimentation, original readings of universally known theatrical themes, and a renewal of the vocabulary of contemporary dance. The Kyiv Modern Ballet has been staging Ukrainian contemporary ballet all around the world, its tours spanning from Portugal to South Korea.
At the center of this ballet show is the story of the Little Prince, the value of relationships between two people, and the understanding of the essence of individuality. It is a story about the significance of simplicity as opposed to the complexity of the “adult world”, and about the importance of childhood as the main chapter of human life. Mozart’s music and Ukrainian colossiques subtly convey the main idea of award-winning choreographer-director Radu Poklitaru, regarded as one of the most gifted ballet masters of Europe.
