Breathtaking and stunningly beautiful, this solo is danced by the Russian ballerina, Diana Vishneva. This solo is the second section out of a three part work called Picarte, which was initially called F.L.O.W. (For the Love of Women). It was choreographed for her by Moses Pendleton who was inspired for this piece by three artists; Picasso, Caravaggio and Erte. Thus he combined their names to create the new title Picate.
