Simple Story / gallery
Egor Menchikov was born in Chelyabinsk, Russia. He began his ballet training at Nureyev Russian State Ballet Academy in Ufa, before moving to Saint Petersburg and joining the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet. After graduating in 2003, Egor joined the St. Petersburg State Yakobson Ballet Theater and subsequently was engaged as a soloist with the Israel ballet. In 2006 he joined HNK- the Croatian National Theatre as a Principal .His repertory there included all the main classical roles, as well as parts created especially for him by Derek Deane, Nacho Duato and Leo Mujic, among others. In 2009 he joined the Polish National Ballet, also as a Principal, where he widened his repertoire further with main roles in works by Kryzstof Pastor, Maurice Béjart, Patrice Bart, Natalia Makarova, Yuri Grigorovich, Frederick Ashton and many others. In 2010, he was invited to perform at the international gala of Les Etoiles du 21ème Siècle in Paris. In 2012, Egor joined the Zurich Ballet under the direction of Christian Spuck, where he had the opportunity to dance main roles in works by Paul Lightfoot, Sol León,William Forsythe and Christian Spuck. In 2014 Egor decided to move with his Israeli wife to Israel, where in addition to his career as a dancer, he started creating his own choreography. His first work - the duet "Dawn" - was awarded a special prize in the National Dance Confederation of Israel Competition. This led to his being invited by Elie Lazar, the director of Ballet Ness-Ziona, to create a piece for the company-“Streams”, which was received with high accolades by both public and critics alike. His unique style is a blend of his strong classical ballet roots with reflections of his wide artistic experience in Europe, plus some influence from his exposure to the Israeli dance scene, including Ohad Naharin's Gaga technique. This year the piece "Streams" was invited to take part in the memorial festival for Ekaterina Maximova in Russia, mean while it was preformed by Encore dance company. at Sadler wells theater in London. This November Egor's new piece "Ashes to Ashes" that was created for the Curtain up festival was chosen to take part in the International exposure in Suzanne Dallal.

טוב עושה לזר שהוא מעודד יצירה בקרב רקדני הלהקה. הפעם יגור מנשיקוב העלה עבודת ביכורים שלו, ""Streams", שלפי התוכנייה עוסקת בזרמים פנימיים וחיצוניים שבאדם ומתארת "מצבים שבהם הוא מסונכרן ובהם שאיננו". רקדו תכלת הר ים, מריה סלקטור, מיכאל שניידר ומנשיקוב. הריקוד בנוי היטב, זורם ומראה את היכולת היפה של הרקדנים. הקטעים היותר מסקרנים היו קטעי הסולו הקצרים שלו שבהן איפשר לתנועה שלו לפרוץ החוצה בלי להיות צמוד לסגנון ספציפי מה שלא בא לידי ביטוי בקטעים הקבוצתיים שבהם הלך בתלם של השפה המוכרת של הבלט. בשלב מוקדם זה, אין לצפות מעבר לכך ויש לאפשר לו להמשיך ליצור ולעודד אותו לחפש את הקול שלו.

"הכל קשור אצלי במחול למוזיקה. היא מכתיבה כמעט הכל ועוזרת לי לשמור על האורגניות של העבודה. אני זוכר שכרקדן כשאהבתי את המוזיקה של היצירות שרקדתי זה הוציא ממני דברים אחרים. המוזיקה עוזרת לי להרגיש בטוח בתוך התנועה. אני ממש יכול לדמיין את הרקדן או הרקדנית בתוך המוזיקה שבחרתי ואז אני יודע אם הוא יתאים ליצירה שלי או לא" - איגור מנשיקוב.
