GENERAL PUBLIC is an immersive, participatory ballet performance. Inspired by Swan Lake’s unique role during crises in the former Soviet Union, this show blends ballet’s timeless elegance with the liveliness of contemporary performance.

In GENERAL PUBLIC, you’re not just a spectator—you’re a dancer in the ‘General Public’ company, preparing for an extraordinary staging of Swan Lake. Collaborate with fellow participants to make artistic choices that challenge conventions and provoke thought. Navigate politically provocative, populist, or even totalitarian themes, creating a performance that is as intellectually stimulating as it is artistically rewarding.

Join us as we democratize ballet, making it accessible to all bodies. After a captivating rehearsal, you’ll don your costume and mask, join a thrilling procession to the stage, and perform your own unique version of Swan Lake alongside a professional ballet prince. In GENERAL PUBLIC, the spotlight is yours.

“Everyone gets the chance to be a ballet dancer in ‘Swan Lake’.”
