“Man is a mystery. It needs to be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life unravelling it, don't say that you've wasted time. I am studying that mystery because I want to be a human being.” These words of Fyodor Dostoevsky perfectly match the task of describing the ballet life of Boris Eifman who in each of his works intently and earnestly studies the most complicated aspects of life and spirit.

The Beyond Sin ballet is a new choreographic interpretation of Dostoevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamazov. By having fundamentally rethought and reworked his own earlier world renowned production The Karamazovs of 1995, also based on this timeless masterpiece of Russian literature, Boris Eifman created an emotionally rich and full of philosophy psychodrama ballet.

Beyond Sin is a modern in technical and artistic-expressive respects scenic creation which broaches age-old “accursed” questions. In the context of the almost universal value crisis of the early XXI century, the choreographer turned to the non-negotiable, secure ethical foundations and staged a ballet on the subjects of theomachy and God-seeking, of faithlessness and faith, of the nature of sin and of spiritual salvation.
