Nureyev’s Dog or What Longing Can Do

Stey find one another at one of writer Truman Capote’s parties in New York: elegant Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev and the ungainly and dirty dog Oblomov. When Nureyev gets sick, he entrusts his motherly friend Olga Piroshkova with Oblomov’s care. In spite of his corpulence and weary bones, the longing for his master drives Oblomov to practice dancing steps each night. The choreography builds a bridge between the sentimental text and the eclectic.
