For this reason Eifman Ballet company established own Multimedia center (MMC) within the support of Investment culture fund grant. The project was finalized during the period from May 2007 till December 2008. MMC is a new division of theater. It consists of audio and video cutting rooms, premises for warehousing of cases with the equipment for guest performance shootings and archive.
The materials received during work can be used for creation of presentation and training DVDs and as programs about ballet for TV. Company’s performances will remain in the history, young actors will have an opportunity to be trained in dance at the advanced level. The materials created by the company can be transferred to photo archive and documentary funds.
During the existence of MMC all performances of current company’s repertoire have been fixed on video at high professional level, many hours of rehearsal and creative process were shot, video- and a photo archive with the extensive presentation video data are prepared.
