“We need to work to be able to support our families. Organizing the shows is now difficult, everything becomes difficult, even bringing the dancers together in one place or transporting a scenography. In the past few days we have been hosted in Krakow, Poland, to be able to training. Now our problem is to find accommodation and a rehearsal room where we can continue to do our work “. This is the appeal launched by Ivan Zhuravlov, director of the Ukrainian Classic Ballet, who arrived in Ferrara with his company, his wife, also a dancer in the historic complex, and their 6-month-old baby girl. Tomorrow the Ukrainian Classical Ballet will perform at the Teatro Comunale in a classic of the romantic repertoire, ‘Giselle’, while on April 9th there will be ‘Swan Lake’.
“When the conflict started we were on tour, we did not know what could happen – adds Ivan Zhuravlov – In recent weeks, then, many other dancers from the ballet corps of the main Ukrainian national theaters have joined the initial dance troupe. We have found accommodation with friends, many of us have asked for political asylum in France and Germany. There are those like us who must leave the country to continue living – he concludes – But there are also many who do not want to leave, and hope that this war finish soon “.
