Brodsky/Baryshnikov is a one-man show based on the poems of the Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Conceived and directed by Alvis Hermanis, a noted Latvian director of the New Riga Theatre, Brodsky/Baryshnikov is 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.

In Russian, with English and Czech surtitles.
