"The ballet Simple Things is based on historical events. It is essentially an attempt to express the main things that define the destiny of any man, his behaviour, his ambition and his despair. It is the instincts that drive us, a struggle and resistance against society in whatever form they come which we cannot avoid – in a word, simple things. For the basis of the work I took key episodes from the life of a legendary heroine. There is no plot, but I am sure that everyone will find something in this ballet that relates to him."
