The Old Woman Robert Wilson, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Willem Dafoe

Following its premiere at MIF13, Manchester International Festival took The Old Woman around the world.

Robert Wilson returned after the success of Life and Death of Marina Abramović (MIF11) with an adaptation of a Daniil Kharms short story starring Willem Dafoe and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The result was impossible to define; dance, theatre and astonishing visual design combined for this surreal sensory overload of a show — one that was also warm, funny and heartbreakingly human.

A Baryshnikov Productions, Change Performing Arts and The Watermill Center project.
Commissioned by Manchester International Festival, Spoleto Festival dei 2Mondi, Théâtre de la Ville-Paris/ Festival d’Automne à Paris and deSingel, Antwerp.

Robert Wilson’s lucid production… is a revelation… Baryshnikov and Dafoe are superb, managing to wring the pathos out of each of their bizarre encounters. We leave the theatre like awestruck victims of a magic trick, asking ourselves: how did they do that?
