Brodsky / Baryshnikov (UK Premiere)
Based on the poems of Joseph Brodsky
Directed by Alvis Hermanis
Performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov
May 3-7, 2017| Apollo Theatre
Brodsky / Baryshnikov is a one-man show based on the poems of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov. Conceived and directed by Alvis Hermanis, noted Latvian director of The New Riga Theatre, Brodsky / Baryshnikov is an emotional journey deep into the poet's visceral and complex compositions. Performed in Russian, Brodsky's mother tongue, Baryshnikov recites a selection of his long-time friend's poignant and eloquent works. His subtle physicality transports the audience into Hermanis' reverent imagining of Brodsky's interior world.
Performed in Russian with English surtitles
English translation by Jamey Gambrell

"Reverent, quixotic, 'Brodsky/Baryshnikov' is a genteel meditation on what and
who a writer's life leaves behind, and what they can forge in his memory."
Jennifer Krasinski, 'Big Words', www.artforum.com, 15.04.2016
"The piece must be considered a labor of love and memory…"
Michele Willens , 'FACE IT: There Is Poetry on Our Stages',
"Baryshnikov's voice is beautiful, and he deploys it both fully and subtly. And
he's an actor of tremendous depth."
Robert Gottlieb, 'Even When He's Not Dancing, Baryshnikov Steals the
Show', www.observer.com, 14.03.2016
