Performance synopsis

Dancers, choreographers, composers and video artists create a multi-dimensional portrait of the greatest dancer of all time. ‘Tonight, I'll dance WAR. WAR you are responsible for’ was the dancer‘s statement during his last dance on 19th January 1919 at the Swiss resort of St Moritz. It was a cry of protest against the collapsing European order – and also a symbolic end to his career. LAST invites us into a space of Negation, Immortality, War and Duality, encoded in Nijinsky’s ‘Diary’.
