The Tragicomedy of Russians in Search of a New Dance

Is it really true that Russian dancers used to leave their country
in search of artistic freedom, to flee from traditional classical
ballet and seek new paths? Yet for them – from Nureyev, down to
today’s young dancers – the Russian school is an indisputable
creed. And if it might have been true that in the past they were at
least seeking personal or political freedom, what are those brilliant
virtuoso dancers and new “Americanised” stars, who trained
in Moscow or St Petersburg, really in search of today?
