« Nijinsky's last jump »

The last act of dance of this great artist unfolds on the occasion of an encounter organized by his wife and Serge Lifar at the Swiss sanatorium where the Russian dancer rested prey to psychotic( schizophrenic?) disturbance for more than 20 years.During this visit in June 1939, Lifar in order to attempt waking the dormant soul of Nijinsky, started to dance excerpts of the "faun" and of the "spectre de la rose". Nijinsky's answer to the recalling of two of the great roles he had created, was a exceptional jump immortalized by the photographer Jean Manzon. This jump, like a leap towards resilience was probably his last, he dies in 1950.
