TRAPPED

 

The first evening-length program from powerful new dance-theater performer Ksenia Vidyayakina, TRAPPED weaves haunting stories of women alone, confined, and forced into the most difficult of choices... A 1920's era striptease takes off her clothes and then some (SKIN); a pregnant MERMAID performs a startling abortion; a dying SWAN gives up her ballet dreams; a drunken Russian SINGER caught in Slavic misery falls from the moon to the earth again and again; a BLACK WIDOW hangs from the ceiling by a possessive umbilical cord, helpless one moment, venomous the next. And throughout the piece a little GIRL sees each episode and wonders innocently, "What is all this and how do I get out?"

Ksenia Vidyaykina won the The New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC Excellence Award in Choreography for TRAPPED.
