(St. Petersburg)

A joint project of Vladimir Varnava and Maxim Didenko.
(Based on the story of A. Notomb “Cosmetics of the Enemy”).

Ballet is based on the novel by Amélie Nothomb called “The Enemy’s Cosmetique”. The story of a maniac murderer, laid into 5 chapter and 2 jokes, addresses the split consciousness of the main hero fettered by the fear to adopt his own integrity. Only death may release him from his inability to live.
