            The choreographer, though deliberately "veiling" the plot to some extent, confidently draws the viewer in the direction of his thoughts and intentions.

            The Creator and the Love, inspired - blessed - by the Muse, create the Creation.

            The Creator, like a sculptor, sculpts from the solid rock and breathes life and soul into his Creation, bestowing upon him his most wonderful, pure and hidden feelings, conceived by dreams of the wonder of his future. But - look! He does not manage to protect his so beloved creature from the invariance of temptation. The creation ends up in the windmill of real-life and its relentlessly rotating propellers "land it" in the Moulin Rouge show. The leading performance of the Moulin Rouge artist is, in a sense, an emanation of the temptress. He introduces the program: the popular and iconic kangaroo dance, alternating with scenes enchantingly breathing on the eastern negro of the fairy tale sheik's steam, to bring the frankly seductive dance of the six girls with feathers on their heads and sails in their hands, accompanied by the popular tune "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?". And so, from the peculiar center, shaped by their sails, appears our hero - Creation - dressed like girls - with feathers on his head, high-heeled boots and also feather gloves. Awesome metamorphosis! The creation seduces no less seductive dancers and instantly captures the attention of the men present. The Creator is also accidentally witnessed in this scene, who happens to be shaken to the bottom - he is amazed, overwhelmed to see his work desacralized, in his eyes - taunted, dirty, vulgarized. The sounds of "Bravo pour le clown" (the stunning Edith Piaf!) And the roar of excitement and approval complete the first act.

            The second part brings us back to the original intimacy. Under the sounds of Jean Gaben's "Je sais," the Creator condemns his Creation, bitterly blaming it for his shattered and shattered dreams. As in every family, the mother (Love) and father (the Creator) mutually blame each other for the bad path their creature took. Their common creation is completely different from their conception of it, and this is the worst. Only the Tempter understands his nature, understands his nature and supports him. Because Creation itself is also a creator - it creates its own creation - a copy of it itself. And this work, though neglected or directly despised by the public, finds understanding and empathy in the arts and gets the audience excited. Because in art, everyone is free to be what he wants, to play with himself and with his world, and with every world, he wants, to be different, different, all kinds. And the contradiction of children - parents invariably weighs on each new generation - to the very breath. And then… As the kaleidoscope turns the wheel again, the Creator and Love, who is the creator of the new Creation, appear again… C`est la vie! ...
