𝐒𝐀𝐌𝐈𝐓 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩 is proud to present the 𝐌𝐨𝐬𝐚𝐢𝐜 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐃𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐅𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐥, which will feature the 𝐃𝐮𝐛𝐚𝐢 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝐃𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞, a captivating original dance programme curated by the acclaimed 𝐛𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐚 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚 𝐎𝐬𝐢𝐩𝐨𝐯𝐚, a principal ballerina with The Royal Ballet in London who is widely regarded as one of the greatest dancers of her generation.

Across the course of the evening, Osipova and her team will enchant audiences with a dazzling performance teeming with a 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐛𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐢𝐱𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐩𝐢𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐜𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐬, promising an unrivalled display of beauty and virtuosity. Like a mosaic itself, this specially-designed programme will intertwine the past with the present to form one unified concept, with the inimitable talent of Osipova taking centre stage in this exquisite fusion of ballet and modern choreography.

Joining her along this journey will be several 𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐨𝐲𝐚𝐥 𝐁𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐋𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐬 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐫𝐞 𝐑𝐚𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐭, 𝐚𝐬 𝐰𝐞𝐥𝐥 𝐚𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐔𝐒 𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐞𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐉𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐊𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐫, 𝐚𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬.

Among the 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐜𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐬 like Romeo and Juliet Balcony pas de deux (MacMillan/Prokofiev) and The Dying Swan (Fokine/Saint Saens), along with a number of contemporary pieces, like Valse Triste, by famed neo-classical choreographer Alexey Ratmanski, and Qutb, a piece by one of Osipova’s favourite contemporary artists – Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, perhaps the most prominent neo-classical choreographer of our time, who has collaborated with such names as Beyonce, and Alanis Morissette.

“It’s important for me that the Bloom Dance Project unites artists from different genres and art forms – neo-classical, contemporary, classical, drama theatre directors and choreographers – so that together we can create new works with a strong mix of dancers and creative team, which inspire and promote the art of dance in its variety of forms to the wider audience. I’m glad I can show this programme for the first time in Dubai within the framework of Mosaic Dance Fest” – 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚 𝐎𝐬𝐢𝐩𝐨𝐯𝐚.
