    Brodsky/Baryshnikov Tickets

    Brodsky/Baryshnikov is the one-man production that sees performer Mikhail Baryshnikov recite a number of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky’s visceral poetry. Using a combination of subtle physicality and emotive dialogue, all performed in Russian, this extraordinary production delves deep into the poignancy of each poem.

    Performer Mikhail Baryshnikov starred in a one-man show detailing the poems of Nobel laureate and close personal friend, Joseph Brodsky. Brodsky/Baryshnikov came to the Apollo Theatre London, following a string of hugely successful performances.

    Conceived and directed by Alvis Hermanis, the noted Latvian director of The New Riga Theatre, Brodsky/Baryshnikov is the wild, emotional journey into Brodsky’s visceral and complex poetical compositions. Performed in Russian (with English surtitles), the play saw Baryshnikov recite a number of his poems, delving deep into the poignancy and delicateness of each piece of work.

    Brodsky/Baryshnikov featured design by Kristine Jurjane, lighting design Gleb Filshtinski, video design by Ineta Sipunova and sound design by Oleg Novikovs and Gatis Builis. The play was a co-production between The New Riga Theatre and Baryshnikov Productions, and was presented by Bird&Carrot. English surtitles are translated by Jamey Gambrell.

    Through subtle physicality and searing dialogue, Brodsky/Baryshnikov transported the audience on an extraordinary journey. Having opened at the Apollo Theatre on May 3rd, the play ran for a limited four performances until May 6th 2017.
