"Transcription of color" is a new performance of the Ballet Moscow Theater and the international creative team: choreographer Juanho Arkes (Spain-Netherlands), playwright Fabien Vegt (Netherlands), costume designer Oliver Huller (Netherlands) and lighting artist Konstantin Binkin (Russia) .
The creation of the ballet "Transcription of color" by choreographer Huangho Arkes and playwright Fabieny Veget was inspired by the painting "The A II Structure" by the Hungarian avant-garde artist, sculptor and photographer, the teacher Bauhaus, Laszlo Mohoy-Nadia and the music of minimalist composer John Adams.
The avant-garde, born at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, gave impetus to the development of new trends in the visual arts, literature, music, and dance. And after a hundred years, the art of the early twentieth century. still excites artists, pushing them to research, rethink and create new works under the influence of bright images and trends of the last century.
In the ballet "Transcription of color" there is no specific plot. The curtain opens and the viewer enters the scenic mirror world - inside the constructivist composition Laszlo Mohoy-Nadia "A-II". Scenography, light, coloristic decision of abstract-graphic costumes of dancers - everything is consonant with geometrical constructions and basic colors of the artist's work. The refined and dynamic music of John Adams, filled with the intonations of composers from different eras, in dialogue with the expressive but elegant dance interpretation of Huangho Arkes, opens up new faces, ideas, and thoughts to the viewer.
"Transcription of color" is a ballet that allows each viewer, through the prism of musical and dance action, to feel dramatic collisions of the interaction of white and black, the collision of yellow and red; it is a performance that gives an opportunity to witness a wonderful and inspired conversation of music, choreography and painting in their surreal combination, when a strict, cold, geometrically laconic constructivist organization of scenic space creates an unusual background for an emotionally saturated, expressive and sometimes even sensual dance.
