Inspired by the enchanting book “The Lost and Unknown Princesses” by the French duo Philipp Lechermeier and Rébeccos Dautremer, the dance looks for ways to help each child discover and love themselves, and to cherish and build meaningful and respectful relationships with other children. Real life situations here move the world of princesses. Embodying extraordinary princesses on stage, the dancers tell the story of how unique each of them is. “In my performance, I invite the princess to discover herself. Being a princess means being yourself. Feel comfortable being who you are, do not copy others,” says I. Kuznetsova. The performance explores the topics of interpersonal relationships, maturation, and bullying, so the Forgotten Princesses will interest not only children, but also their parents and educators.
In 2017 the performance was featured on-stage at the prestigious John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., U.S.A.
