About

‘A Strange Garden’ is a theatrical ode to the genius of Rudolf Nureyev, the most renowned 20th century dancer. Not long before his death, Roman Viktyuk promised Nureyev, his friend, to stage a performance about him. The result, produced 10 years after the great dancer’s death, is a subtle and moving narrative about the tragic fate of the artist who – in the name of his passion – decided to abandon his home country with the famous ‘leap to freedom’. The play, starring the Honorary Artist of Russian Federation, Dmitry Bozin, explores Nureyev’s relationship with Margot Fonteyn, with his mother, with Erik Bruhn and with his life-long love: dance. Viktyuk shows the miraculous transformation of a Tatar boy obsessed with art into a dancing superhuman.
