Although it is currently very difficult to produce new film projects due to the precarious situation around Corona, we shot a new film in February 2021. The title fits this time and is a song by Ksenia Parkhatskaya – a confession about a difficult time

 Face everything and rise

Deeper and deeper dragged into the cave of the fear, seductive poisonous queen, maybe one day she will be able to inhale a different dawn?

Ksenia Parkhatskaya

The song is about fear and it’s destructive power. An expression of weakness and strength to realize, face one’s fears and rise.

When life is ruled by fear, there are no winners, we all lose. Acting out of fear, we built a world of evil, misleading ourselves that this is for the good.

All we are and will ever want is love.

Searching for the wrong one, for the enemy, to lift and identify yourself. Putting upfront our eyes, heart a shield and sword of identity. We ran with almighty power to slit throats on the way cutting whoever might be unlucky to be around. One might want to ask… really, why?
Out of deep and throbbing fear



FEAR

Lyrics
by Ksenia Parkhatskaya

Fear, paralyzing fear
To be left alone
In the shell of your own
And sink in your misery

Fear, terrifying fear
To be misinterpreted
With what you did or said
Twisting your history

Like poison you come
In the fragile times
To choke my freedom

Your field is a lie
covered with mines
I can’t let it mislead me

Fear, overwhelming fear
To miss your chance
You might think happen once
In the race for the victory

Like poison you come
In the fragile times
To choke my freedom

Your field is a lie
covered with mines
I can’t let it mislead me

Fear, agonising fear
To not be loved
In this separating world
Where all fight for identity

And I
Will learn how
To walk without it


About Ksenia Parkhatskaya

“Ksenia Parkhatskaya is a world-renowned dancer who’s worked with artists and projects as diverse as Postmodern Jukebox, the Paris Opera Orchestra and Christian McBride.
But despite having over 250 million video views, she turns her attention now to her life-long passion as a singer.

Her sombre, rich vocals draw comparisons to Melody Gardot, Stacy Kent and Katie Melua, but her songwriting, with husband and bassist David Duffy, stretches far beyond jazz into areas of cinematic and even electronic music” – Jazzfuel
