Years after the fact, a brutal bit of destiny put their lives in disorder and took more time to Turkey, for an alternate explanation. The Ukrainian a couple were with the Turkish dance company Anadolu Ateşi (Fire of Anatolia) this week, yet this time, to track down a spot to remain. As the conflict broke out in their nation, Alexander and Iryna Balakhonova couldn’t find anyplace to go and chose to move back to Turkey where they once resided. To their delight, they observed brief sanctuary in the behind the stage of an outside ballroom utilized by the group in the southern Turkish area of Antalya.
With their two kids, the couple made a little house for themselves in an unused segment of the behind the stage and invest their free energy in the middle phase of Aspendos Arena where the group performs.
The family was living in Mykolaiv, a Black Sea port city, when the Russia-Ukraine war ejected. Dreading for their lives, they burned through three days in an asylum and searched an exit from the conflict torn country. They had resided for some time in Turkey prior to getting comfortable their country Ukraine in 2017 and thought it was ideal to bring there back. They reached individual artists from Anadolu Ateşi and the company welcomed them to Antalya, to their exhibition scene close to the eponymous antiquated theater. Joined by Iryna’s mom Galyna Dziuba, they hit the road. For six days, they drove along a course of around 2,300 kilometers (1,429 miles), through Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria lastly, Turkey. In the exhibition scene, they made a living space for themselves. Iryna’s mom shows the couple’s young child who had to exit school because of the conflict, while Iryna and Alexander practice routinely in the field for their future exhibitions.
