THE DANGEROUS DANCE OF GEORGIAN MEN
Sparks fly on the stage from Sukhishvili men's swords and knives!
Everything is real here: burning passion, incredible speed, precision, and power.
Georgian dancers amaze with their choreography, with the rotations in the air and on the ground, with the dizzying jumps that abound the stage with energy. Men dance with astonishing precision, and women move gracefully like angels.
They dance in socks without the help of "locking" shoes being the only men in the world who dance in this way. In ancient times it was considered inadmissible to kneel in front of a young lady. Instead, sitting on your toes was considered a special way to express admiration.
The ensemble's visiting card is "Dancing on the Fingers", which is a famous choreographic movement which requires the highest qualification and skills of the dancer.
The Washington Post (USA)
“Try to jump up grouped in the air and then fall on the floor right on kneecaps and spring to your feet again as to repeat everything again and again. Perform the rotation on your toes being booted in soft boots with such velocity that no one could see your face. And immediately twist on your knees on the edge of the scene. Enchant lovely ladies, peacefully and archly overseeing your dare dance, the aim of which – is to get on their good side”.
Daily Mirror (UK)
“The world's greatest dancers. The Georgian dancers fly. There is a storm on the stage!”
New York Post (USA)
"Two and a half hours will fly before you decide on what to pay attention and admiration - the music, the wonderful costumes, or the amazing technique of the dancers."
