Nijinsky’s Last Jump

Wednesday 18th May 2016

Nijinsky's Last Jump 2 Company Chordelia  photo by Susan HayCritically acclaimed dance theatre from Company Chordelia's award winning Artistic Director Kally Lloyd-Jones. Nijinsky's Last Jump combines theatre and dance to evoke the legendary 20th Century dancer's journey from global success to the desolate isolation of mental illness. As the passionate obsession of the young Nijinsky comes face to face with the searching inner life of the older man, this sharp and tender show portrays a poignant intimacy of genius and madness, youth and age, exploring both the performing and private self. Inspired by the rhythmic obsession of Nijinsky's diaries, Young and Old Nijinsky consider their life together, on and off stage, trying to make sense of the loss of self.
