Anna Zharova, prima ballerina NOVAT
– Our profession is very binding, important. We all lack real emotions, directness in life. I want to be honest with my viewers, they always feel fake. The artist on stage, as if under a microscope. Just like he is. With his problems, fears, emotions, experiences.
