A Ballet by John Neumeier
Neumeier’s Nijinsky is partly a biographical narrative, focusing on the key events and relationships of his life, but also a form of memory-ballet, in which we enter Nijinsky’s own fevered reflections on his art, his identity as a man and artist, and the perilous, tumultuous times in which he lived. Designing the sets, costumes and lighting as well as choreographing the work, Neumeier has shaped an act of personal homage, but also charts the delicate line between genius and madness with incredible immersive power and empathy. Nijinsky leaves the audience emotionally bruised but awakened to the sensibility and vision of an extraordinary artist.
