- You will represent Your “New Centaury” show to Armenian audience on October 17. How did the idea of the concert occure to You?
It has been a long time since my last visit to Yerevan and my previous concert show was based on a classic foundation. I am bound to Yerevan with a greate human freindship. Large number of my freinds are representatives of Armenian community of Russia, Wonderful composer Ara Gevorgyan is also a freind of mine, he composed melody specially for me, that became dance music for my ''Golden Cage'' dancing program. This dancing performance was awarded with a storm of applause. My name also seems to be a link between Armenia and Russia – ''Anastasia, that is Armenia and Russia». I am not indifferent to your country, that's why I have a great wish to represent my new concert show. I myself initiated the upcomming concert, I found one of the best concert organizers and we decided to organize the concert on a tight timetable.
- Can we suppose, that title of the of the concert “New Centaury” signifies a new word and style in ballet.
I am a classic ballet dancer and my activity in ballet has a classical orientation. While working in classic performances I was searching for a new format and dreaming of creating such a show, that can attract mass audience. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to attract modern audience by classic ballet not only in provinces, but in Moscow and St. Petersburg theatres too. For that reason a new program was in a process of arrangement, that will be represented to Armenian audience. (Full version of interview is available in Armenian).
