Principal of The National Opera and Ballet Theatre of Ukraine
－What do you think is the significance of physical expression in contemporary society?
People are very sensitive, and dancing helps me experience different emotions.
Physical expression, I guess it’s our worldview.
－What do you want to convey to people through your physical expression?
I want to convey my inner world with my dance and express the dance in a flexible and emotional way.
Immerse the viewer in a state that embodies the movements of my dance and give them pleasure.
－What do you think about lately?
Thoughts are always changing, it all depends on the emotions experienced, events, and the place where you are.
Now I’m in Japan and a lot of my thoughts are about the country’s culture and life here.
And speaking of thoughts that never leave me, I am worried about my family in Ukraine and the future of my country.
