Tatiana Berenova
In this 10th anniversary year of the Russian Seasons, the famous Russian ballerina Tatiana Berenova will perform her own choreography piece "How to Paint a Bird." Music for this piece is written by Tatyana Dikareva. Poetry is by Jacques Prevert. This piece is about a human and a bird, about the artist and the creativity, awaiting of the arrival of a bird, her entrapment and then letting her go into the big world.

"Sometimes the bird arrives quickly
but sometimes it takes years
Don't be discouraged - wait
Wait for years if necessary"
