Mikhail Baryshnikov and Robert Wilson first worked together on The Old Woman, a theater piece based on the writings of absurdist Russian author Daniil Kharms. Baryshnikov co-starred with Willem Dafoe. For the 2015 Spoleto Festival, Wilson created Letter to a Man, a solo piece for Baryshnikov, using the diary of the iconic dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. The diary, which in part documents Nijinsky's descent into madness, was first published in 1936.
