Territory of Ballet
God gave me possibility to reveal a life as it is, where we can prove ourselves our strength, defeat our fears, scruples and a sorrow… City with his streets, help us to fell this action, urban drive and union with the completely new world in its infinite variety. Miracles were born here. Beauty is here, we are spectators of newborn inspiration and fantasies. All this passing sensation leaves a light in our souls. A light which guides us through the territory of ballet.
In the photo-project, created by the author during the past 6 years, Alex Krivtsov managed to present us his unique photographs of ballet dancers, whose incredible grace and beauty seems to be woven in architecture of one of the beauties cities in the world – St Petersburg. His fragile dancers are so natural and sincere in their dance that you cannot dare to say - “I don’t believe”. Some of the best ballet dancers of St Petersburg and Russia participated in the realisation of this photo project with the author. They are bold, sexy, with an irreproachable ballet technique. In the frame, you will see incredible things happen, the city becomes a background to create images.
Nowadays, legal Ballet Territory are streets, yards, bridges, they help to each person to create their own dance. They inspire by the contrast of a landscape made of stone and iron and finesse of ballet movements. In each image we see, the author shows us a lightness of dancers, a passion of dance, the virtuosity of the talent and the Russian soul, which is able to soar anywhere, even if there is no place to soar ... Alex Krivtsov once again manages to amaze the audience by originality of a project and a high-class of his professional performance.
