A solo show based on the poems of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, Brodsky / Baryshnikov is the tale of one manâ€™s incredible emotional journey, conceived and directed by acclaimed Latvian director Alvis Hermanis.
Performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov, the play dives deep into Brodskyâ€™s real, visceral and complex compositions, bringing out the truth and meaning in his poignant and eloquent works. Delivered in Russian, Brodskyâ€™s own language, Baryshnikov transports the audience into an imagining of the poetâ€™s own world, through subtle physicality and searing dialogue.
Told through recitations of Brodskyâ€™s poems, this ground-breaking piece of theatre receives its UK premiere at the Apollo Theatre London, presented by Bird&Carrot. A co-production from Hermanisâ€™ own company, The New Riga Theatre, and Baryshnikov Productions, this mesmerising performance plays at the theatre for a limited four shows.
