Abstract:

Documentary on dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, recorded soon after he defected to the West in Toronto. The narration draws parallels between the ballet La sylphide and Baryshnikov's real-life decision to leave the material security of the Soviet ballet world for the artistic adventures and challenges represented by the West. Performances recorded prior to his defection show him dancing variations from Don Quixote and The sleeping beauty, Act III. Following his defection, he is seen with members of the National Ballet of Canada in company class, taught by balletmistress Joanne Nisbet, and in rehearsals for La sylphide, supervised by Celia Franca. Performance excerpts recorded for television depict scenes from Acts I and II of La sylphide. Speaking through an interpreter, Baryshnikov discusses his life and training in Russia, his reasons for and feelings about his defection, the symbolism of La sylphide, and dancers Rudolf Nureyev and Valery Panov, whose defections preceded his.
