In the center of Arina Panfilova's choreographic research is doom and take-off attempt in the works of Andrey Platonov.
- In my opinion, the works of Andrey Platonov are extremely masculine. They help to look at the world through the eyes of a man, and it is a very good experience, - said Arina. - Platonov is a painful author, the impression of his works stay in your mind for a long time. Despite this, through the tragedy of a child in my miniature I try to bring the viewer to the light. I think I'm still trying to find my own Platonov, and this project helps to rediscover the writer.
