Exclusive shootings of the world famous ballet dancer Ulyana Lopatkina during the rehearsals and performances at Mariinskiy Theatre. Observing the “closed” ballet dancer in the creative process and in the everyday’s life.
Existence in a world of a classical dance demands particular concentration. Art can absorb you completely and separate you from the people – there are lots of example of that kind. Ulyana has interrupted her dancing experiments on the top of her career only because of the daughter. Of course, child as alive God’s creature is higher than anything being created by human. Masha, her daughter, is growing up and Ulyana is coming back to the stage. But art is very jealous. Now ballet dancer has to go the same way to the mastership picks that once she has passed already.
