Perhaps you’ve seen them floating over a Russian village? Or perhaps you’ve seen her toppling forward, arms full of wildflowers, as he arches above her head and steals an airborne kiss.
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.
After the heady success of the live broadcasts of Romantics Anonymous, Wise Children have teamed up with their friends at Kneehigh and Bristol Old Vic to bring you Kneehigh's award-winning production of The Flying Lovers Of Vitebsk directed by Emma Rice.
This 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 traditions.
Recorded live from Bristol Old Vic this month, the recording of The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk is available to rent from 7.30pm on Friday 11th December until 11.30pm on Friday18th December. The ticket allows you to rent the show for 3 days - the three days start from the moment you first click play to watch .
