duration ~ 2 h (with one break)
Eurasia is a modern ballet choreographed by Izadora Weiss with stage design by Ewa Kochańska and music of Bach, Nigel Kennedy and Kroke, Bruno Coulais (soundtrack from Don Juan and Himalaya), Lisa Gerrard, Michał Lorenc, Yamato and original Tibetan music. This is a dance vision of two great civilizations - Asian and European - phenomenon, expression of fascination with differences but also an attempt to find common points which appears to be human emotions.
Eurasia is a sightseeing tour in search of cultural differences using emotions. Thanks to the sensations felt when faced with each other and the surrounding world, a group of young people make an attempt to find the similarities and differences between the West and the East. Eurasia is above all a poetry of movement and music. It is a way to familiarise oneself with the beauty which is scarcer and scarcer both in the art and in our life. Thanks to such outstanding ballet team consisting of artistic personalities, such poetry is possible.
In Eurasia I have touched such crucial for me issues like: lack of tolerance, the elder generation shutting themselves away from the young one, solitude and a feeling of being lost by individuals. The closing scene of the performance is the essence of what in my opinion is the real foundation, namely the need to create. It is the greatest gift man can possess. However, in the art it became flamboyance and courage as in others opinion it is destruction and abhorrence that constitute the only mature truth in the theatre. It is abused a lot nowadays. I create what I love and what I believe in, notwithstanding the current trends. Despite the fact that beauty is neither in the public eye nor is it shocking but can be easily a subject of mockery, I will stand by it on the stage.
Modern dance, sneered at by some devoted classics enthusiasts, is the domain of numerous world-renowned ballet groups, treated as a true art through which we can probe into our sensitivity and true emotions. I cannot say the same about the classical dance which has manifested hardly anything for the last hundred years. Since modern opera performances have deflected from their museum canons, I see no reason to subject the opera scene to classics. Luckily, nowadays there is no imperative to present solely such kind of dance.
