The story presents the fate of three pianists who were connected by an extraordinary bond – a romantic triangle. The materials used to create the spectacle are their letters and diaries – full of mutual respect and attachment and unusual tenderness of Clara SchumannRobert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. The performance shows their sensitivity, love, parenthood, friendship, mental illness, adolescence, life experience acquisition, limitations and weaknesses related to the human psyche and body.


On September 13, 2019, we’ve celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of a grand piano virtuoso, a romantic composer, occupying a leading position among nineteenth-century pianists. It was on this occasion that a dance performance was created, initially called the Clara Project. On the time of the anniversary of Clara Schumann’s birth, we would like to draw attention to the composer’s extraordinary biography and to ensure that her memory does not fade over time.

The Clara performance uses the universal language of movement and music, thanks to which it meets the expectations of a wide audience, both young enthusiasts of classical music and dance theatre, as well as older connoisseurs of theatre art and contemporary ballet in the so-called “good taste”.
