Description: Victoria Ivanova's solo performance "Dervish tours" was captured in San Marino's national theatre, Teatro Titano, during the 32nd World Congress on Dance Research. The world's top dance professionals and researchers were brought together for a magical weekend in late June 2012 by Unione Folclorica Italiana (UFI) under the auspices Conseil International de la Dance (CID) UNESCO.

The framing of Victoria's twirling figure is deliberately offset creating dynamism through imbalance (in the conventional sense). However her orientation into larger space prevents the visual weight from pitching too far to the right; if she were to face the other direction, there would be greater imbalance and sense of progressive movement to the right.

Title: Victoria
