SND Ballet in collaboration with an international production team presents a new original piece about the legend of black-and-white film and one of the foremost artists of the 20th century, Charles Chaplin. Native of London, Chaplin made his career in the United States. He remains one of the major comedians, actors, directors and screenwriters in global film. Charlie Chaplin remains, in public mind, identified with the unforgettable kind tramp with a walking stick, a jacket too tight and shoes a size too large. We bring the dance portrait of the film and human genius in world première in the Spring of 2019.
