SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Broad Stage marks the U.S. premiere of In Paris, starring ballet legend and avant-garde artist Mikhail Baryshnikov and Anna Sinyakina, leading actress in the Laboratory of director Dmitry Krymov. Based on Nobel Prize-winner Ivan Bunin's story, In Paris is an exquisite love story set in 1930s Paris that is also a profound meditation on loneliness and loss. This rare international collaboration—told in French and Russian with English supertitles—unites renowned artists born in Russia for a vivid visual experience in a dramatic tour-de-force of unforgettable impact. There will be an opening night after-party sponsored by Los Angeles Magazine at Tiato. Additional tour dates include: Berkeley Repertory Theatre, April 25-May 13, 2012; Spoleto Festival, Italy, June 30-July 1, 2012; and, Lincoln Center Festival, NY, August 1-August 5, 2012.
Baryshnikov's love of the new and willingness to take chances have fueled his engagement with In Paris, which he describes as a personal project done out of love. Stage and screen star Anna Sinyakina, who plays opposite Baryshnikov, has been working in director Krymov's Laboratory since 2004. The cast also includes: Maxim Maminov, Maria Gulik, Dmitry Volkov and Polina Butko.
Director Dmitry Krymov founded the Laboratory in Moscow in 2005, and stages the play as a multi-media event weaving together mime, song, music, video and enlarged images of old Paris postcards to create an austere, black and white atmosphere around the mesmerizing physicality of his two star performers. The piece will include original music by Dmitry Volkov and the design team features the work of Maria Tregubova, Damir Ismagilov, Andrey Shchukin, Alexei Ratmansky and Tei Blow.
Don't miss the U.S. premiere of Baryshnikov's latest exploration as an artist and the power of movement in unforgettable human stories.
