Direct from the Urals, Russia The Big Ballet
A comedy ballet of weighty elegance and adorable humour
Big Ballet which was founded in 1994 hails
from the Urals. Each of the sixteen dancers in the corps de ballet weighs 220 pounds or more, and has only one
goal: not to lose a single pound.
They deliberately and confidently challenge accepted social standards in a world
where the pursuit of slenderness and beauty has taken on an almost maniacal devotion. They imposingly prove that
grace, elegance, charisma and nimbleness is not the demesne of the ‘thin’. The dancers proudly present their
voluptuous bodies which are surprisingly sinuous, flexible and graceful, despite their ampleness.
The ladies enchant their audiences with a collection of classical and modern ballet
pieces in an hilarious comedy show full of fun and astonishing choreography, proving that you shouldn’t take
life, or yourself, too seriously. They encourage us to accept ourselves just as we are and not to strive for
unattainable ideals of beauty and to enjoy life and simply have fun.
The wonderful music and gorgeous costumes complement the magic of the dancers
perfectly. Let yourself be enchanted by a show full of humour and the contagious high spirits of the dancers. It is
sure to amaze and delight.
