Annihilation is a purely scientific term, but in the context of dance, it is combined with contemporary art, becoming the engine of performance, an irreversible process. One of the best dancers in Ukraine, Yaroslav Kainar, in his solo, goes to a special state in which he is able to perceive the most invisible vibrations of the outside world. At the time of the performance, it becomes an archiving substance that responds to every impulse: sound, light, vibration. It is both fragile and graceful.

Yaroslav Kainar since 2014 is a dancer in Totem Dance Theatre (Kyiv, Ukraine) and a teacher of contemporary dance and modern jazz in the Totem Dance School.
