Choreographer, Anželika Cholina
Anželika Cholina, born in Vilnius in 1970, began choreographing in 1991, while studying at the Moscow Theatre Academy (GITIS). Today, having become during her 18-year career one of the best-known choreographers in Lithuania, she continues her artistic work creating performances for the most prestigious stages in the country.  A. Cholina was awarded the Kristoforas National Theatre Award for her choreography of the ballet performance “Medea” staged at the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre (1996), and recently received the “Golden stage cross” Theatre award for the dance performance “Othello” (2006).The pupils of Vilnius Ballet School and Munich dance academy with great success presented A. Cholina’s choreographic miniatures at the international ballet competitions in Lausanne, Varna, Moscow, Paris, Tokyo, New York, Stockholm, Munich and Helsinki. During her choreographic carrier she has produced 5 one act ballets, more than 50 choreographic miniatures and 12 dance performances. One of the latest works of Anželika Cholina – dance performance “The coast of women” (originally “Songs of women”, set to the songs of Marlene Dietrich), opened in August 2008 at E. Vachtangov Theatre, Moscow.

A|CH today

A|CH dance theatre today is the biggest dance theatre in Lithuania, with its privileged position earned through artistic merit. The theatre tours nationally, as well as internationally, having traveled to Hungary, China, Great Britain, Latvia, Poland, Russia, and Denmark in previous years. Under the inspired direction of choreographer Anželika Cholina, the theatre is recognized for its passionate, intelligent, visually stunning dance performances, which are a mix of ballet, modern dances and drama. A|CH dance theatre is also giving opportunities to talented choreographers to realize their creative ideas through working with A|CH troupe: the latest cooperation in this field happened in the spring of 2008, when the theatre invited a choreographer from Russia, Oleg Glushkov, docent of Moscow Theatre Academy. For A|CH he created an original dance performance “Donkey hot” based on the novel “Don Quixote” by M. de Cervantes, with music by L.A. Minkus.The company has had a profound influence on other dance theatres and individual choreographic works, as most of their founders/creators were or are the students of Anželika Cholina – since 1998 she leads the actors-dancers group in the Acting Department of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre .

Theatre’s troupe
The theatre doesn’t have a fixed troupe. For each performance A|CH theatre chooses the artists according to the requirements of the performance. The core of the theatre’s troupe comprises 20 artists – students of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and ballet artists from the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre.
