Emmy-Award winning actor Paul Giamatti performed a reading of excerpts from Vaslav Nijinsky’s diaries, chronicling his profound alienation and descent into madness, as performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov in Letter to a Man, directed by Robert Wilson as part of BAM‘s 2016 Next Wave Festival. Afterwards, the panel engaged in a discussion on dance, madness, and sexuality.
