The New “Cabaret” Star
Last weekend the shooting set of “ShowMustGoOn” turned into some 1930s’ Cabaret. Nastya performed as Liza Minnelli, the legend of American cinema of the previous century. It was the times of flamboyant dances and eccentric costumes.
The film “Cabaret” brought Liza her first Oscar for the Best Actress in a Leading Role while Nastya got the affection of the audience and jury’s approval for recreating Minnelli’s chair dance to “Mein Herr” song.
“I was lucky to perform as Liza. First and foremost, she is an actress who sets good example of the real great artist should act. It was hard to work on choreography because I didn’t have enough physical skills to dance with such a partner (chair). I’m glad I’ve been into some training and despite my bruises and backache, I’ve learnt this uneasy dance, which, by the way, is now one of my favorite ones. This remarkable and outstanding performance is exactly what I’ve been dreaming to create!” , – says Nastya.
