    A world premiere staged in Manhattan’s Chinatown, Fire in the Head salutes the tortured genius of Vaslav Nijinsky, who, as many artists today, grappled with the confluence between global and personal crises.

    Christopher Myers, in concert with Sifiso Mabena, Marcella Murray, Ashley Winkfield, Ismail Lawal, and others will bring to life the famous diaries of this path breaking dancer and choreographer through original shadow puppets he designed and made in collaboration with master craftsmen in Jogjakarta, Indonesia.
