The director Robert Wilson and the legendary dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov join artistic forces to create a piece based on the famous diaries of Vaslav Nijinski, published in 1936, of which Henry Miller said: "It is a communication so naked, so desperate, that it breaks the mold. If he had not gone to the asylum we would have had in Nijinsky a writer equal to the dancer."
Letter to a man is a theatrical work performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov, who enters the fragmented mind of the great dance artist as he descends into madness. As always in Wilson’s works movements, text, lights, set and music are equal parts of an unrepeatable opportunity to enjoy these masters on stage.
