Press:
“Haunting and buoyant…Set in a 1930s ex-pat Paris embodied in cleverly manipulated giant sepia-tinted postcard images, Krymov’s Paris—adapted from a short story by Ivan Bunin—is a moody, wryly comic blend of engaging visuals, enchanting found-object music and a romance…Sinyakina is a delight [and] Baryshnikov holds the stage with seemingly effortless charisma, from before the show begins until its end. His concentrated, slow movements can be riveting. His short dance moments—a quick burst of frustrated flamenco; a graceful toreador routine (choreography by Alexei Ratmansky)—add welcome dramatic punctuation.”—San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Spectacular but also intimate…An ephemeral dream of last romance, which floats from lovely to surreal [and] keenly captures the ache of solitude and the fleeting bliss of romance…Mikhail Baryshnikov scarcely dances at all until the haunting finale of In Paris. But the ballet legend shows such a genius for movement that his body language is an art unto itself in this fearlessly inventive theatrical adventure. The dancer has such a striking physical presence, even at 64, that he elevates the smallest movements into epic moments of truth. He is mezmerizing.”—San Jose Mercury News / Bay Area News Group
 
Premiere: August, 17th 2011 at Korjaamo Theater.
