The 19th New York International Fringe Festival, held on August 14-30, will host the world premiere of “To Dance” – a musical stage adaptation of the autobiography of Russian-Jewish dancer Valery Panov, who left the USSR to forge a career in the West. To mark the event, RBTH tells his story and remembers other Soviet dancers who took the decision to leave their country forever in search of a better life.
