Mikhail Baryshnikov

Letter to a man
in french and in russian, french subtitles



An exceptional document on the last lucid moments of a man in the process of descending into madness, The Diary of Vaslav Nijinsky is a work of art. Fascinated for a long time by this moving testimony, Mikhail Baryschikov is without a doubt the greatest dancer of his generation, performed under the direction of Robert Wilson, these Letters to a Man are haunted by the figure of Serge Diaghilev who was the lover of Nijinski.
