Story:
Life's a gambling cube that is turning and rolling, and once it falls – it is up to us to  decide whether to accept the outcome or to reject it.  To live in a time where cubes are  thrown, dropping  at  5 to 12, and sometimes  5 past 12, is a sign, an omen.  It  is a warning that  we should always be prepared for anything. That is exactly  the story of  this  latest  Kirov’s   contemporary dance  performance, taking us to the world of cubes and colours. The choreographer Igor Kirov created an imaginative  vision of life as a gambling game visualizing it through  12 blocks, 12 scenes , and  12 dancers.  High technical performance of  the dancers,  bursting with energy,  passionate music, a unique  combination of tecno etno elements,  as the fundamental choreographic impulse , and  fabulous  costumes influenced  with Macedonian etno motives,  and all these components united with the  light design  that takes your breath away.
We follow the story   aware that every dream of perfection is always slipping away like a house of cards. There is always  a new game  starting anew, and there is little time left. In the game of life it’s always '5 to 12' ..



Baletna predstava 5 do 12 premijerno je izvedena na prošlogodišnjem Splitskom ljetu u koreografiji Igora Kirova, najistaknutijeg makedonskog plesača i koreografa koji zavidnu međunarodnu karijeru gradi na scenama od Makedonije do Koreje te od Italije i Njemačke do Kube. „Život je kocka koja se okreće i kotrlja, a nakon što padne - sami odlučujemo hoćemo li prihvatiti ishod ili ne. Živjeti u vremenu gdje se kocke bacaju ili padaju točno u 5 do 12, a ponekad i u 5 poslije 12, znači da trebamo uvijek biti spremni na sve. Upravo tako je i ovoga puta u ovom mom svijetu kocaka i boja„ – tim je riječima Kirov opisao osnovnu ideju 5 do 12, svoje prve predstave sa splitskim Baletom koju je postavio na glazbu Kirila Džajkovskog. Taj višestruko nagrađivani autor filmske i kazališne glazbe kao i sam Kirov jedan je od najznačajnijih ambasadora suvremene makedonske kulture. Autorski tim ove od kritike hvaljene i izuzetno popularne plesne predstave čine još i Aleksandar Noshpal, jedan od najistaknutijih makedonskih kostimografa, te svestrani slovenski scenograf Matija Kovač koji je osim brojnih, zapaženih i nagrađivanih kazališnih scenografija vrlo aktivan kao dizajner interijera, te likovnih, arhitektonskih i multimedijalnih izložbi. U predstavi ravnopravne uloge igra 12 plesača splitskog Baleta.
