Diana Visheva: On The Edge celebrates the extraodinary artistic versatility of one of today's greatest dancers. Praised for her dazzling technique and dramatic intensity, Vishenva is the starof two works commissioned specifically for her: Jean Christophe Maillot's intriguing pas de trois Switch and Carolyn Carlson's profound solo work Woman In A Room.  Maillot, choreography director of Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, set Switch to music by the Academy Award nominated and Grammy Award winning composer  Danny EIfman. Vishneva called the piece " A story about a woman, her alter ego and her relationship with men". Woman In A Room was created  for the internationally renowned award winning  star of the Mariinsky Ballet and American Ballet Theatre by Carlson, director of the National Centre for Contemporary Choreography  in Roubaix and of the Atelier de Paris at La  Cartoucherie de Vincennes in Paris. "Carolyn  is a choreographer who understands a woman's soul", says Vishneva. Inspired by the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, Woman In A Room in an evocative work that follows one woman's journey in life, filled with joys, bitterness and contemplation. The music is by Italian post minimalist composer and cellist Giovanni Sollima with a finale piece by Rene Aubry.  Diana Vishneva: On The Edge recieved its World Premiere at Segerstorm Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California in November 2014. It recieved its European premiere in 2015 at the National Centre for Contemporary Choreography in Roubaix, followed by performances in Mente-Carlo at the Salle Garnier, The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg.
