Elena Kolyadenko: “Everyone has the right to choose his own way”
I’m sure that there must be people, for whom what we do is necessary, like air!
Everyone has the right to choose his own way.
We should feel what we do. All the states that we experience on stage must be real.
To touch the spectators’ souls in the hall is our main mission on the stage. All 15 years of the ballet’s existence we learn how to do so that the viewer trusts us. This is not an easy process. But this is interesting for us. We are testing everything we have created on ourselves.
I am an absolute amateur in the choreography. I come from amateur performance. I have not put it on for ten years, and it’s still being attributed to me.
I am inspired by life and people most of all.
In general, it is very important in our profession to be observant and open. And brave!
Movies, fashion, theater, even streets – all these help to create something own. You think: “Oh, it would be good to try it!” or “Oh, this is an interesting topic!”
For several years I dreamed of seeing whales. Finally, there were circumstances, and I was near the ocean. The dream came true! I will never forget this.
