Entry Description

Ever since the days of Diaghilev and his dancers, Russia has been known for wonderful dancers whose careers existed independently of the state system. Marcella Soltan, an actress from the theater "chernoeNEBObeloe", has created her own style, with roots in traditional pantomime and dance theater - yet radically different from established forms of movement. Marcella absolutely owns her body - every muscle, ligament, and joint that moves at lightning speed - from the dead stillness of abandoned toys to incredible mechanical speed. She is the only actress in Europe awarded the Furder Prize.
