RA RA RASPUTIN
Grigori Rasputin (1869–1916)
“Despite my terrible sins, I am a Christ in miniature”
Russian peasant. Self-proclaimed holy healer. Legendary lover. Orthodox. Coercive. Indomitable. Endowed.
“Oxana Panchenko is equally impressive as a supple, balletic Grigori Rasputin, ingenious in mixing stern expressions with outlandish movements. Any choreography that makes beard stroking visually arresting deserves praise”
“Oxana Panchenko is outstanding as the legendary Russian lover”
