After her second pregnancy, Polina Semionova returned to the stage dancing David Dawson's VOICES last season. Here she tells us what made rehearsals so special:

»It was my first piece after my pregnancy. And David pushes your limits. He pushes you to get out of your bones, out of your skin and out of your body to sing with all your muscles and feel the music. And his choreography also allows this. I felt like in each movement I did, that he poured his soul into it. So, that was the right piece for me to come back. And that´s also why VOICES is so special to me.« — Polina Semionova, Principal Guest

You can still see her dance in VOICES at the Deutsche Oper Berlin on November 4 and 11.
