Nijinsky is the title of this choreographic approach to a dance phenomenon that has been part of Neumeiers life ever since the beginning of his career. During his approximately ten years as a dancer, Vaslav Nijinsky (1889-1950) set a new standard both technically and expressively, while in his choreographic work he pointed the way towards modern dance.
