30 June-1 July. Based on the story by Ivan Bunin, directed by Dmitry Krymov, with Mikhail Baryshnikov and Anna Sinyankina. This play is a coproduction of the Baryshnikov Arts Center. For those of you who are familiar with the charismatic and virile image of star dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, his portrait on the poster of this new acting venture is maybe shocking. He looks aged, vulnerable and frail. His eyes seem to be appealing for love while his sloping shoulders betray need. Described as a groundbreaking new play based on a Russian short story by Nobel Prize-winner Ivan Bunin, set in 1930, In Paris tells the brief, tragic love story of two lonely Russian immigrants, an ex-general of the old imperial army and a beautiful, much younger woman whom he meets at the Russian restaurant where she works as a waitress. Staged by Dmitry Krymov, a set designer and painter who started an experimental theatre in Moscow in 2005, the play uses music, song, mime, video and poster-size images of old Paris postcards to create a sombre world in black and white. It’s a bittersweet tale of love, longing and loss. Performed in Russian with Italian subtitles.
