Exhibition on Igor Stravinskys Dance Innovation to be Held  in St. Petersburg

From November 24 to January 15 the St. Petersburg Theatrical and Musical Art Museum will be holding the exhibition Russian Los Angeles. Igor Stravinsky. Innovations in Dance.

      It will present photos provided by archives, libraries and private collections. The curators of the exhibition investigate early dancing innovations in Los Angeles (in the 1910s-1940s), considering them to be synthesis of ideas of Russian emigrants and local actors.

      From the moment of its foundation Los Angeles, the twin-city of St. Petersburg stood out with the spirit of innovation in art and attracted aspiring actors and performers from abroad. After the tours of Russian Seasons across America in 1916-1917 and during the war years many art figures migrated from Russia to the United States, having thereby influenced development of the American dance.

      Igor Stravinsky lived in Los Angeles longer than in any other city, therefore Los Angeles is the central component of this exhibition.  Stravinsky’s creative period in Los Angeles extended for nearly three decades replete with ballet and music performances, which made the artistic picture of the 20th century.  

      The exposition makes it possible to trace the development of the American dance by performers of Sergei Diaghilev’s Russian Seasons inspired by Stravinsky’s music.

      The exhibition will run at the address 6, Ostrovsky Square.
