Ricardo Melendez is a tour-de-force who takes us on a mesmerizing journey. Nijinsky, the tragic Russian ballet dancer’s sweeping rise to fame and his ultimate decent into madness. Nijinsky’s Last Dance – a huge hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 07, earning the ‘Critic’s Choice’ by ‘The Scotsman’. Creating a sense of incredible vulnerability, Melendez encapsulates the audience as he tumbles back on a journey retelling a tale of passion, patronage and sexual exploitation through the dancer’s eyes. Melendez IS Nijinsky.
