Play with the Wind

Solyanka VPA
Moscow 2017
In this installation we use wind power to reconstruct the famous Maurice Ravel Bolero.
Notes are transformed into fan impulses, the higher the pitch, the faster the fan spin. The audience is invited to experience the ballet with their body and skin. Deafblindness is a unique disease under which people have the maximum of possible limitations of main living abilities (ability for self-care, orientation, education, communication, work etc). At the same time right now there are no exact statistics how many deaf-blind people live in Russia, there is no registry of their needs, there are no programs of their support on a systematic level.
Project made in collaboration with Deafblind Support Foundation Soedinenie
