The “Duo Viola” was founded in 2007 with the aim of uniting the work areas of the two artists in a professional and aesthetically attractive form. The combination of acrobatics and solo musical performance is unique in its manner.The “Duo Viola” tells a love story between two artists – Viktor and Mariana are a couple off stage, as well – and also comprises the rapprochement and fusion of wo art forms, music and acrobatics. The result is a performance full of passion and sensuality.The powerful corporeality of the Ukrainian acrobat Viktor Nebrat fits seamlessly with his partner’s beautiful viola playing, which takes up his flowing motions. In a symbiosis between body and sound, strength and smoothness, the two artists are subsumed in each other and sweep the audience away in this spectacle of the senses. Like a siren, Mariana Vozovik uses her viola to lure her masculine counterpart, provides the tact for his movement, and, with the gentleness of her sounds, makes his difficult, strenuous figures seem effortless, as if he were floating on the tones she produces. In return, she is carried along by the stream of his movements, which give her playing the character of an acting performance. They are able to touch the viewer with the elegance and grace.
This interpretation of the act includes a more modern look and feel in terms of costume and music. See our other Duo Viola page for an alternative look and feel.
