For the second time this season, the saga of tortured dance genius Vaslav Nijinsky plays out on a New York stage. Last fall it was Baryshnikov in Robert Wilson's production at the BAM Harvey; now it's the German troupe Gauthier Dance presenting Marco Goecke's 2016 bio-ballet NIJINSKI, for a cast of sixteen athletic dancers, to a recorded score of selections from the work of Chopin, Debussy, and Russian punk music. Called "high-frequency" and "aggressive" by reviewers in Germany, the non-linear, abstract, eighty-minute dance-drama, performed without intermission, documents the extraordinary twentieth-century dancer's career from international star to institutionalized schizophrenic. Goecke, the house choreographer for the Stuttgart Ballet, has worked all over Europe, in Canada, and for the New York City Ballet; his non-traditional approach to ballet next turns itself to a piece about Kafka!
