‘For this newly commissioned production at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava we’re joined by Viljandi Culture Academy dance theory lecturer Kai Valtna and dance technique teacher Raido Mägi, who are partnered in dialogue with their student Anumai Raska. The piece focuses on the sense of uselessness and victimhood, projecting it on both performers’ and audience’s bodies, while, at the same time, drawing parallels with exclusion and identity crisis in Estonian society.’
Ruslan Stepanov and Artjom Astrov have previously collaborated in a dance production ‘Невесомость’ (Kanuti Gildi SAAL, January 2018) and a showing of a work-in- progress at Hiiumaa Tantsufestival (August 2018).
