Non-documentary story of love and death
Tragic life of the Great Russian poet Sergey Yesenin reflected the catastrophes of the first half of XX-th century like in a mirror. It is no coincidence that it was Isadora Dunkan – a great American ballet dancer, theatre innovator and an incredible woman, – who was with Yesenin in these turbulent years.
The Poet and the Dancer met in post-revolutionary Moscow and twisted into such a crazy whirlwind of feelings and passions that the world around ceased to matter anymore.
Binding poems, music and physical theatre, Roman Viktyuk creates a performance, full of many cultural associations and metaphors and yet Sergey and Isadora sounds relevant and up to date. This “non-documentary story of love and death” breaks the traditional boundaries and draws the viewer into a mad, passionate and very beautiful scenic kaleidoscope.
Composition is based on poems and biography of SERGEY YESENIN and on the book of ISADORA DUNKAN “My Life”
