"240 TONS BALLET"....
"Best off all was the trio "240 tons": fat women were flying over the stage and were making the splits"
newspaper "Moscow Komsomolets"
"They are fat but they dance! And how they dance! It's a top piloting on the stage!
"240 tons ballet" rushed down the country from TV. They showed Boris Moiseev performance. 3 portly girls danced so brave, that even master himself couldn't dream about it lying in his imitated coffin. It was a show! Audience was shocked. Storm of applause."
Newspaper "Moscow Komsomolets"
"When I saw that ladies at the Music-Hall theatre for the first time, I just popped my eyes in astonishment. Just imagine, three very fat women dressing in extremely short dresses and tights get out on the stage and demonstrate energy of joy and dance!"
"North express" magazine
"Marika Tamash cause wild enthusiasm of audience with her travesty items. She is really great both in the part of Odillia from "Swan lake"/surrounded with dressed swans of the men's corps de ballet/ and in the part of Sasha from Kabare-duet "Akademia". She also menages to dance as a soloist of her small ballet "240 tons", proving that this not very light group could dance rock-and-roll as well."
Newspaper "St-Petersburg vedomosti"
Much warse everything with interviews. I couldn't find three journalists who asked:
-What does the name "240 tons" mean?
-How did you decide on dancing with such a big weight?
-Do we gain weight specially?
-Do we like to lose weight?
-What do we eat?
-What funny stories have happened to us?
-Do we have admirers?
It is so dull to answer all this stupid things at
first, and it is disgusting to read about in later in issued view. From
all this stuff I menage to find only very few quotations, that I am not
ashamed for me and my colleges journalists.
HOW DOES PEOPLE GET FAT?
Bit by bit think the mechanism is the next; firs person gains
80kg then stops controlling himself, then thinks:
"How come?" And then everybody acts in different way. I
was loosing my weight for several times - to 75kg, but not for long. If
somebody wants to loose weight he must make it his purpose ant turn the
process into the aim of life. And forever, but not for the moment. I
think this is boring and now even very expensive.
ONE SUFFERS FOR 2 EXTRA KILOGRAMS AND THE OTHERS WITH THE WEIGHT 100KG JUMP ON THE STAGE. IT SEEMS THAT COMPLEXES DON'T DEPEND ON THE APPEARANCE.?
The complexes appears when one doesn't like to be himself and wants to turn into somebody. The so called hidden suicide. The world looks absolutely disgarmonial for the "silent suicide". Something comes to the first plan and it appears that your body is disgusting even when others like it. The accent makes you ridiculous even if nobody notice it."
It is you
from whom I like to find out the secret of Success! I beg you...
The most important but most
difficult - to determine clearly he purpose.
PLEASE, I"D LOVE TO BE THE JOURNALIST, THE BEST AND THE RICHEST!
- My dear, this is a dream, not the aim. The aim is - to issue a newspaper, create the style, open new possibilities and then keep sailing, do not drown.
BUT WHAT IF I STILL WANT TO BE RICH?
-Be banker or bandit.
O'KEY.ASSUME THAT I WENT OVER MY DREAMS. WHAT ELSE?
-Take the notepad and count every day - separately: How long have you been sleeping, eating, chattering, shopping, watching TV and then how much time have you spent for reaching your purpose. If correlate is 1/1, your perspectives are good. If "Santa Barbara" prevails, don't blame somebody at your failure.
BUT IT IS HARD LABOUR!
-This is your will, your aim and your love.
AND WHAT ABOUT ROMANTIC SIDE? WHERE IS RISK? WHERE IS BET FOR SUCCESS?
-I don't know what is success - failure. There are catastrophes, loses, death - the indomitable life element. And there is laziness, lack of desire to use circumstances. The incomprehensible Boris Moiseev invited us to take part in his performance and we've had a great success
- everything was prepared for it - actors, costumes and everything else. The success came in a moment, but there were before it - years of labour, poverty and honest love to "process with no result". Risk it is in casino. Life consists of different circumstances - favorable or not. And you must overcome or realize them.
TO BE HONEST, ARE YOU CONTENT WITH YOURSELF?
-I content with the life I have, with my job and even with some results. I like to appear in the new quality but on the old places. Look, I danced on the stage of theatre "Skazki", that one where i had worked for 4 years as the literature editor; on the stage of "Gorky" cultural center, where I had taken dancing lessons and then had worked as a menage of the department of amateur art; I danced at the anniversary of my native Theatre Academy.
THIS IS A SORT OF COUNT MONTE CRISTO...
-Monte Cristo took revenge on his ruined life, but I have nobody to take revenge on. I just rewrite my biography.

WAS THE MOST PLEASANT COMPLIMENT OF YOUR LIFE?
At not very pleasant period of my life Mikail Barishnikov came to my
dream and told: "How astonishing are your aerobics lessons. Let me
come to take part." I woke up the happiest person in the world. I
made 8 dancing programs for 4 days and survived. As for the compliments,
they are all the same.
YOU GIVEN INDESENT SUGGESTIONS?
are no indecent suggestions at all. There are either irrelevant or
unprofitable. I was never given so favorable suggestions that i would
go...to sauna for example. But if to think about unstability of money
and cold weather.....
IS YOUR AIM?
have pleasure of life. Sometimes it seems, that i survived 5 or 6 full
life. If to characterize my life with the point of view of literature
heroes, it will look like this: first I was Karlson, now I am slowly turning into Freken Bok. Then I suppose I will turn into
Malish, who later will become The Ghost.
