Bristol Old Vic, Kneehigh and Wise Children present
The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk
Watch at home live streamed direct from Bristol Old Vic.
Partners in life and on canvas, Marc and Bella Chagall are immortalised as the picture of romance. But whilst on canvas they flew, in life they walked through some of the most devastating times in history.
Daniel Jamieson’s The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk traces this young couple as they navigate the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other. Emma Rice’s sumptuous and physical production is drawn in a theatrical language as fluid as Chagall’s paintings, and woven throughout with music and dance inspired by Russian Jewish tradition.
Wise Children TV will bring this visually stunning, intimate and emotional production live into your home – each night will be a truly one-off experience. The company have been isolating together in one large bubble for the last two weeks so that the show can be performed in its original form. With no social distancing, you can expect something as magical as one of Marc Chagall’s paintings, with singing, dancing and perhaps even a large blue fish...
As an official partner, Capital Theatres will receive a percentage of ticket sales. Please note tickets are sold through Wise Children's official website.
