Product description

Nijinsky – "God of Dance"

An interactive illustrated experience designed for those who love dance.

“One of the most remarkable collections in the world”
(Dance Magazine, June 1950).

This unique app presents 242 photographs of Vaslav Nijinsky, the legendary ballet dancer of the twentieth century and star of the Ballets Russes. Photography is the only available means to experience Nijinsky’s greatness as no films of him dancing were ever produced. Viewers will discover Nijinsky in twenty-one ballets from 1906 to 1916 and in his every-day life from 1902 to 1928. The photos are accompanied by groundbreaking articles that provide new insights into Nijinsky’s art and complement the viewing experience. Evocative commentaries by those who witnessed Nijinsky in performance offer a first-hand impression of his genius.

User's Guide:
There are two identical sets of photographs for a varied and interactive experience. One set is divided between the sections Ballets, Student Life, and Civil Life, with supporting information on the majority of photographs. In the second set, located in the Photo Album, they are thumbnails that allow for zooming and swiping. Considering the large number of photographs in the collection, this section facilitates immediate access to all the images, thus providing viewers, especially dancers, the possibility to skip between photos to quickly compare poses, gestures, expressions, and costumes. The Photo Album is presented without supporting information to offer a more contemplative experience without textual diversion.

This App includes a link to the film, "Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909–1929: When Art Danced with Music." Narrated by Tilda Swinton, this 28 minute film introduces Serge Diaghilev, events leading to his creation of the Ballets Russes, and his gift for assembling the avant-garde composers, dancers, painters, choreographers and designers that formed the 20th century’s most innovative dance company. The film includes excerpts of revivals performed by Les Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo, the Paris Opera Ballet, the Joffrey Ballet, and the New York City Ballet.
