I don’t know how the story for his current music goes, since that’s the first time I hear about it tbh, but the arms were conveying torment/inner turmoil in previous programs. It’s perfectly normal for a teenager to be attracted to angst and uncertainty. Honestly, I expected him to go for Raskol’nikov or Myshkin at some point with his choices and what he says about it, only I dunno if anyone ever bothered with musical versions.Hmm, had never realized this - he has always seemed a perfectly decent school boy relying on a lot of funny arm moves for his interpretation, not a sinister or villanous second in his programs in my eyes. Plus this was kind of more from a heroic point of view, don't you think?
honestly, I am stomped by someone interpreting Master and Margarita as beyond teens, because I pretty much read it endlessly as a teen. Obviously, with modern paranormal romance trends some teens might mistakingly ship Voland, but other than that… it’s not inaccessible by any means.
what I couldn’t handle as a teen was War and Peace, but Mozalev actually does, so respect where it’s due.
