    Press
    • "Life is the sum of tiny movements," Brodsky says. And that is what Baryshnikov shows.
    • Shining light on the darkness is the best way to expose injustices

    • An opportunity to experience what it's like to have freedoms curtailed and spirits broken.
    • Osipova gives a fittingly intense performance.
    • He morphs from folklorique babushka to elegant rose gardener (in high heels) to slinky witch and prowly, snake-slithery lover – always a superbly dark force to Osipova's compellingly complex mosaic of emotions and movement styles.
    • Osipova excels at channelling the energy of martyrdom into her performance; she seems like someone constantly on the brink of giving up, but fighting against it with all her will.
