BWW Reviews: Edge Theatre's NIJINSKY'S LAST DANCE is a Show Biz Tell All
by David Clarke - Sep 7, 2013

Vaslav Nijinsky was heralded as the greatest male ballet dancer of the early 20th century. He deftly performed gravity defying leaps, leading many to assume he used wires, and could even dance en pointe, which was a rare skill for male ballet dancers at the time. He famously choreographed L'APRÈS-MIDI D'UN FAUNE, which had a salaciously explicit ending for the contemporary audiences of 1912, JEUX, a flirtatious dance which he intended to be danced by three men but was changed to be danced by one man and two women, and the legendarily infamous 1913 LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS (THE RITE OF SPRING), which ended with the graphic sacrifice of a female virgin and caused fights to break out between the audience as some loathed and others championed his totally new style of ballet. Vaslav Nijinsky's life was rich with juicy backstage romantic affairs, and he also suffered from mental illness, which became so extreme that he was forced to retire from the dance world and spent the remainder of his life in and out of psychiatric hospitals. All of this is addressed in the 1998 one-man show NIJINSKY'S Last Dance, written by Norman Allen, which is enjoying a Houston premiere production by Edge Theatre Company. (more...)
