The performance "proKINO" is dedicated to the year of Russian cinema, announced in 2016. Its peculiarity is that the musical accompaniment of the performance is based on quotations from soundtracks to many Russian and Soviet films. The films we love, the films many generations of spectators have grown up with. The dancers on stage do not illustrate the plots of the films, they live their own stage life, as if acting in the movies, but recognizable melodies cause the audience new associations every time you hear them.
