In April 2010, two months later after the premiere of Presentiment of Spring Yury Smekalov staged a new ballet for the Mariinsky Theatre. Within the context of the New Generation project for young choreographers he presented the premiere of Bolero Factory to the music by Maurice Ravel. Inspired by the painting of Hieronymus Bosch The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things Smekalov created the story about the soul’s fight against the seven sins.
The action took place at the factory space with a large ventilation fan, where the souls were put to the test like on a conveyor. Creating this ballet choreographer worked on an inventing a brand new dance movement based on the gestures of a sign language transformed into the dance. Each of the eight characters talked about themselves turning into the dance the words written about them in the program of the play.
