Perhaps you’ve seen them floating over a Russian village? Or perhaps you’ve seen her toppling forward, arms full of wild flowers, as he arches above her head and steals a 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, navigating the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other.

Daniel Jamieson’s The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk comes to Oxford after selling out at London’s Globe Theatre and the Traverse in Edinburgh, where it won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award. Emma Rice’s production is drawn in a theatrical language as fluid as Chagall’s celebrated paintings, and woven throughout with music and dance inspired by Russian Jewish tradition.

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval

Presented by Kneehigh and Bristol Old Vic

Written by Daniel Jamieson
Directed by Emma Rice
