Visions fugitives, Nºs 10-11

Kasyan Yaroslavich Goleizovsky’s avant-garde choreography of Prokofiev’s Visions fugitives, Nºs 10-11 (Ridicolosamente, Con vivacità) for his own company, the Moscow Chamber Ballet, in 1922. The configuration of the bodies is architectonic, like so much art of the time, and acrobatic. The avant-garde costume design was adapted to the new dispositions of the body. | src The Russian Art of Movement review
