Nijinsky Notes is a project that is based on Vaslav Nijinsky's (RUS 1889-1950) diaries, written during 6 weeks in the period January 19 to March 4, 1919. Nijinsky had just been admitted to a mental hospital and the diaries are a manic document, written by the most celebrated dancer and innovative choreographer of his time.
