Robert Wilson / Mikhail Baryshnikov
Letter To A Man
Fri, Nov 18 at 8PM and Sat, Nov 19 at 8PM
Mikhail Baryshnikov steps inside the splintering psyche of one of the greatest dancers in history in director Robert Wilsons staging of Vaslav Nijinskys diaries. The text chronicles the onset of the iconic Russian performers schizophrenia in 1919, tracing the contours of his profound isolation, tormented sexuality and spirituality, and preoccupation with erstwhile lover and Ballets Russes founder Sergei Diaghilev. Hal Willners collage-like score weaves audio fragments of the diary with a century-spanning soundtrack of songs by Tom Waits, Arvo Pärt, Henry Mancini, and Soviet futurist composer Alexander Mosolov, as our coat-tailed subject sashays and staggers through Wilsons saturated lightscapes.
