The Small Format Festival (2007-2017) was devoted to diverse experiments with a focus on movement and mainly presented solos and duets of contemporary dancers, who had substantial professional experience. It was crucial that the participants created and performed their pieces themselves. The festival accommodated artists from Russia and abroad. Among the festival’s guests were Tatiana Gordeeva, Vladimir Golubev, Irina Brezhneva, and other notable Russian dance artists. Among international guests were German choreographer and dance teacher Britta Schoenbrunn, Finnish dance artist Noora Nenonen, American choreographers Maida Withers and Gabrielle Revlock, and exquisite Russian dancer Polina Akhmetzyanova who currently lives and works in Brussels. The Small Format Festival was conceived and organized by Ekaterina Zharinova, a contemporary dance artist based in Yekaterinburg, who is a former dancer of the world-renowned Provincial Dances Theater.
