“Summer! Dreams about Russia” is a hip-hop extravaganza show based on Russian folklore, with elements of modern dance and circus art
The stage project of “Summer! Dreams about Russia” is based on Felix Mikhaylov’s concept of “mixed genres.” This time the author challenges the traditional perception of folklore by studying and transforming it. The music in “Spring. Dreams about Russia” is presented by EtnoZapil avant-garde band. Sergey Mironov and Anton Ankushin create their folklore music sets of various sound combinations: didgeridoos, trump harps, saws, flutes, ocarinas, kalimbas and the human beat-box. The choreography of the show is being developed by leading hip-hop dancers in Russia – Vlad Rudenko (Finalist of World Hip-Hop Dance Championship 2015 in San Diego), Marina Peukur, two-time Hip-hop International Champion, semi-finalist of Las-Vegas World Championship (USA), and Dmitry Orlov (three-times vice-champion of Europe in hip-hop, four-times European hip-hop and popping Champion according to International Dance Organization (IDO) and International Cheer Union (ICU).
The choreography of the show “Summer! Dreams about Russia” is close to the figurative type of performance with many quotes and allusions. The fistfight scene is presented as a hip-hop battle; air acrobatics follows the laws of ballet. Film inserts show scenes and images from legendary Russian films: “The Formula of Love,” “Journey Across Three Seas,” “Battleship Potemkin.”
