Show One Productions in association with Luminato presents Brodsky / Baryshnikov January 24-27, 2018 | Winter Garden Theatre Making its anticipated Canadian premiere, BRODSKY / BARYSHNIKOV is a one-man theatrical performance that gives voice and verse to the poetry 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 a synthesis of word and action, 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. "Even when he's not dancing, Baryshnikov steals the show." - Observer "Hypnotic melancholia." - Financial Times
