About the show

Based on the poems of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, Brodsky/Baryshnikov is the incredible one-man show, performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov. Playing for a strictly limited four performances at the Apollo Theatre London, the performance is presented in Russian, with English surtitles.

Conceived and directed by Latvian director Alvis Hermanis, Brodsky/Baryshnikov is the subtle, yet visceral study of Brodsky’s deeply complex compositions. Baryshnikov pulls each poem apart, reciting a selection of the poignant works in their original language. Subtle physicality and beautiful eloquence transports the audience into Hermanis’ wondrous re-imagining of Brodsky’s mind and world.

Brodsky/Baryshnikov is designed by Kristine Jurjane, with lighting design Gleb Filshtinski, video design by Ineta Sipunova and sound design by Oleg Novikovs and Gatis Builis.

Directed by Alvis Hermanis, this ground-breaking piece of work is a co-production from Hermanis’ The New Riga Theatre and Baryshnikov Productions. Presented by Bird&Carrot, Brodsky/Baryshnikov makes its UK premiere at the Apollo Theatre London.

Brodsky/Baryshnikov runs from May 3rd to May 6th 2017.
