The performance "Labour.May" staged by choreographer and director Sergey Larionov is a study of "a person in the interior" – here, in the interior of an assumed factory or a sewing workshop. The narrative is based on real interviews with seamstresses and costume designers, and its main theme is the life of a woman creating, who is inconspicuous, but extremely passionate about her work. 

Female dancers are looking for their place among sewing machines to the music of the Symphony of Sewing Machines, specially written by composer Anton Yakhontov, as the stories of love and tenderness for the profession are drowning in clatter and rattling.

Breathing is the protagonist of the new production by choreographers Anna Garafeeva and Dina Hussein. It becomes the basis for the sound score and choreographic text. During the performance, the sound of the dancers' breathing is transmitted through microphones and transformed while passing through algorithmic schemes. In this way, the choreographers explore the phenomenon of breathing as a means of fixing the emotional and physical states of a person and society, as a new form of sensuality and empathy.

Μοιραι FM is a performance in podcast format. The authors are the Music and Thermos art group that includes composers Alexey Sioumak and Dmitry Mazurov, as well as playwright and director Liza Moroz. An abandoned and destroyed radio station broadcasts from a parallel world only on special occasions. On air there are eccentric ladies drinking tea from a thermos and talking about music, art, life, death, hope, and despair of one chosen hero. As it turns out, these are Moirai — ancient Greek goddesses of fate who dwell beyond the control of time itself. One spins the thread, the second carefully winds it around a spindle, the third is free to cut the thread at any time. But where is she? While waiting for the third Moira, the podcast hosts get carried away with music and poetry that fill the hero’s life, and they are getting younger right in front of our eyes. 

Bride Song is a dance miniature by the Dutch choreographer Nanine Linning. It is set to the composition of the same name by the musicAeterna resident Alexey Retinsky for soprano and chamber ensemble based on poems by Emily Dickinson (2020). Music and movement in the Bride Song performance do not illustrate but mutually enrich each other, have the same weight but different form and content. The fragile charm of Alexey Retinsky’s song plunges into the “objective” space-sound continuum and becomes the culmination of the dance score. Nanine Linning: “The piece feels like a lucid dream. Two women are being lit by ghostly figures, as echoes of their movements, as future echoes of their spirits, placing their femininity and vulnerable sisterhood against a dark and magnetic field of energy. Their innocence is sung by soprano Katya Dondukova, surrounded by musicians of musicAeterna.”

Soulwhirl is a dance performance created by choreographer and dancer Olga Tsvetkova, film and theatre director Vladimir Nikolouzos, and composer Vangelino Currentzis. Soulwhirl refers to the journey of the human experience through which man descends into the depths of the psyche finding the essence to rise above it, and even his own body.

The rhythmic distorted phrase that gave name to the performance sounds like an incantation: in the Uralic Mari language, the irreproducible sound combination means "I'm tired of your old blood."

The author of the performance is an interdisciplinary artist Alexei Taruts, formerly a lawyer, an art critic and a film director. The transmedia performance-ritual becomes a kind of philosophical rave. Here, similar to a rave party, all possible channels of perception are activated. Mixing different media, the artist explores the very concept of "an event". The vivacious, pulsating, continuously self-reproducing texture of the performance is designed to help the audience focus on their individual perception, violating the automatism of their customary behavior and perception. Contradictions, imperfection, non-uniqueness and instability are the working tools of the artist, whose goal is to appeal to the irrational in each of us.
