After many years of anticipation, Russia’s most exciting modern ballet company, EIFMAN BALLET St. Petersburg making a Toronto debut with their latest masterpiece, RODIN, a new ballet by Boris Eifman inspired by the remarkable life and art of French sculptor Auguste Rodin.
RODIN is the tumultuous tale of two artists, Auguste Rodin and his muse and mistress, Camille Claudel. Visionary choreographer Boris Eifman has created a contemporary performance where dance and sculpture come together and find an unprecedented camaraderie in a modern ballet of love, lust and jealousy.
“Eifman is the real deal, a choreographer-magician who can shape the most unlikely material into throat- catching, mind blowing stage images.”Newsday

To turn a moment, frozen in stone, into an irrepressible stream of sensuous body movements; to capture the human spirit as brilliantly as Rodin and Claudel did in bronze and stone, was Eifman’s intention in creating “One of the great ballets of the 21st century!” (NY Dance), a dance performance that expresses artistic innovation and the terrible price of genius that comes with it.
